Mark of Distinction

Desert Care Network has been awarded re-accreditation by the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of an on-site inspection.

As part of this national recognition, CAP congratulated W. Stephen Bush, M.D., the laboratory's medical director, for the "excellence of the services being provided.” Desert Care Network is one of the more than 7,000 CAP-accredited labs worldwide.

During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examined our records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examined staff qualifications, our equipment, facilities, safety program and record, as well as the overall management of the lab. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for all patients.
