MOLINE, IL - Quad Cities Pathologists, LLC and Metropolitan Medical Laboratory, PLC have been awarded accreditation by the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP). This was based on the results of a recent onsite inspection at the 7th Street, Moline location and at the Metropolitan Medical Laboratory located within the Trinity Hospitals.
The laboratory's director, Paula Y. Arnell, MD, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. Quad Cities Pathologists, LLC and Metropolitan Medical Laboratory, PLC is one of more than 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories worldwide. The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government's own inspection program.
During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory's records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, as well as the laboratory's equipment, facilities, safety program and record, in addition to the overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care to all laboratory patients.
On January 24, 2011, Metropolitan Medical Laboratory expanded this high standard of quality service with the opening of a NEW Patient Service Center in Silvis (685 Avenue of the Cities, Suite 2). Metropolitan Medical Laboratory is also newly opened to all patients at the John Deere Medical Group building at 4101 John Deere Road, Moline, IL . Phone (309) 765-1600, hours are M-F 8 am-5pm.
