The Wabash General Hospital
Foundation is a non-profit
organization, which raises
money for needed equipment
for the hospital.
The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Wabash General Hospital’s Laboratory based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The facility’s laboratory director, Dr. Roy W. Kirchberg was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. WGH’s Laboratory is one of more than 7,700 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.
During the CAP accreditation process, designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
