UNI Student Health Clinic Laboratory receives COLA accreditation

Posted on Thursday, December 8th, 2011

UNI Student Health Clinic Laboratory has met all criteria for renewed accreditation by COLA, a national healthcare accreditation organization.  Accreditation is given 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.  In addition to receiving a two-year accreditation, the lab also received the Laboratory Excellence Award.  This was given to the UNI Student Health Clinic laboratory for its outstanding performance in quality patient testing and overall exemplary application of the principles of laboratory practices. This is COLA's highest commendation.  Congratulations to Sue Meyers, clinical laboratory technologist, and all of the SHC team for their working in achieving this recognition!
