Stellar results from the NYS Department of Health for St. John’s Episcopal Hospital’s Laboratory during recent site survey

Posted on August 3, 2015

Following upon St. John's Episcopal Hospital's laboratory accreditation by The Joint Commission's Laboratory Accreditation Unit on March 20, 2015, St John's laboratory and other affiliated departments faced intense scrutiny by five unannounced New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) inspectors on July 14th. After three days of thorough review of all processes and documentation in all areas of the laboratory, DOH surveyors walked away handing St. John's only one minor deficiency!

At the exit interview on day three, the five inspectors unanimously expressed delight and pleasure at the impressive level of professionalism and competency exhibited by St. John's laboratory team, stating that St. John's Episcopal Hospital has now raised the bar as the standard of excellence in this area for all other New York State hospitals. This is a result of perseverance, dedication and most importantly, teamwork.
