Springfield Clinic’s laboratory system makes it easy for patients and providers to get lab work done in a timely and efficient manner. Many laboratory facilities are accredited by either COLA or CAP. All locations can accept orders from all Springfield Clinic physicians and nurse practitioners as well as orders from outside physicians, chiropractors, podiatrists and dentists.
The Commission of Office Laboratory Accreditation (COLA), the country's premier clinical laboratory accreditation organization, has granted full accreditation to several of Springfield Clinic's satellite locations. COLA's endorsement signals Springfield Clinic has met stringent regulatory and quality standards, providing patients with the peace of mind they are receiving the best care possible.
Springfield Clinic's Main Campus is accredited by CAP (College of American Pathologists) Accreditation, an internationally recognized program that utilizes teams of practicing laboratory professionals as inspectors. CAP Accreditation helps laboratories achieve the highest standards of excellence and patient care by enforcing standards for the management and operation of the facility that go well beyond regulatory requirements.
