Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center Laboratory marking 55 years of continuous CAP accreditation

Accuracy, precision, timeliness, compassion, courtesy, and respect. Six words woven into the fabric of the laboratory staff’s culture at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, Camden, New Jersey.

On Halloween 1963, the laboratory achieved its very first CAP accreditation and never looked back.

Now 55 years later, Nabil Al-Annouf, MD, MBA, FCAP, chair of Our Lady of Lourdes’ Department of Pathology, reflects on those six important words: “The CAP, as our trade organization and accrediting body, is important to our staff members because it gives them assurance that their contribution to patient care meets the highest standard at every level, beginning with accuracy, precision, and timeliness and ending with compassion, courtesy, and respect.”
