(MENAFN - PRLog) Physicians' Primary Care of Southwest Florida recently received the Laboratory Excellence Award during the reaccreditation of its laboratory from COLA, the national healthcare accreditation organization.
Accreditation is awarded only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of proficiency testing, and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey.
"We are honored to receive the Laboratory Excellence Award, which is the highest commendation given by COLA. This recognition is a testament to the hard work of our staff, medical support and physicians and shows our long-term commitment to provide high quality medical care to our patients," said Dr. Mary Yankaskas, managing physician of Physicians' Primary Care of Southwest Florida.
COLA is a non-profit, physician-directed organization promoting quality and excellence in laboratory medicine and patient care through programs of voluntary education, achievement, and accreditation.
