Dulles, Va. – (Aug. 23, 2021) – StoneSprings Hospital Center’s Laboratory has been awarded accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) following an on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.

“I am very proud of the outstanding work of Ashley Pabey, director of laboratory, and our entire laboratory team have done to ensure the highest standard of care for our laboratory patients,” said Nathan Vooys, StoneSprings Hospital Center chief executive officer.

The U.S. 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, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
