GENESIS Receives Accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP)

GENESIS Fertility lab receives accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP)

The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) awarded accreditation to our laboratory here at GENESIS Fertility & Reproductive Medicine based on results of a recent on-site inspection conducted by CAP inspectors. The inspection team included practicing pathology and laboratory medicine professionals. Recognized for rigorous and robust standards, CAP accreditation elevates quality and mitigates risk, an important way that laboratories can contribute to improved patient outcomes.

The CAP advised Alka Goyal, PhD HCLD/CC, the Laboratory Director at GENESIS, of this global recognition and congratulated the laboratory for its excellence in the services being provided. Our laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.

“The IVF lab at GENESIS stands proud as a beacon of excellence passing the CAP inspection with flying colors and no deficiencies. We are committed to providing the highest standard of care helping dreams take shape, one miracle at a time.” said Dr. Goyal.

Upon learning of the laboratory’s accreditation, Katherine Melzer Ross, MD, FACOG, the Director of ART Services at GENESIS, said: “Being a CAP-accredited lab is a great accomplishment and a sign that our lab holds itself to a rigorous set of standards. We are proud to be the only CAP-accredited lab in Brooklyn.”

During the CAP accreditation process, designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management. These reviews help verify activities reflect the most recent best practices.

With over 23,000 laboratory participants, in addition to accreditation, the CAP offers proficiency testing/external quality assessment (PT/EQA) programs, quality improvement tools, and protocols and guidelines to ensure excellence in all areas across the laboratory. Built on a foundation of pathologist expertise, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) partners with laboratories worldwide to elevate the quality of laboratory medicine with best-in-class solutions designed to drive operational excellence, achieve diagnostic confidence, and ensure the best patient care.

Congratulations to the pathology and laboratory medicine team for this significant accomplishment that further demonstrates our commitment to high-quality patient care at GENESIS.
