Press Release

Chester River Hospital Center Lab Receives Accreditation from College of American Pathologists

For immediate release...

Chester River Hospital Center Lab has been awarded accreditation by the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of a recent onsite inspection.

The laboratory’s director, Min Yu, MD, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. Chester River Hospital Center Lab 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 for all laboratory patients.



Min Yu, MD, is the medical director of the laboratory at Chester River Hospital Center.
