Wayne Memorial Hospital’s laboratory has received a two year re-accreditation from the College of American Pathologists. The lab processes close to 800,000 specimens a year and must meet rigorous standards of quality and accuracy to earn the certificate of accreditation.
“I am very proud of our team. We have great tenured clinical leaders and very bright newer techs,” laboratory manager John Romano said.
The lab professionals and pathologists at Wayne Memorial Hospital and its satellite offices are involved in 80% of diagnoses physicians make and play a vital role in healthcare in the communities the hospital serves. Over the past couple of years through the COVID-19 pandemic, the staff was challenged with shortages but carried on unceasing. Their commitment is crucial to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
