Accredited by the College of American Pathologist (CAP) since 1980, the main campus lab and Express Lab at Jennie Stuart Health’s Eagle Way campus, Hopkinsville, serves patients, physicians and other clients from seven counties.
In 2016, the CAP reaccredited the Laboratory at Jennie Stuart Health for an additional two years. Earlier that year, CAP conducted an on-site inspection of lab records and quality control procedures over the prior two years. Inspectors examined lab staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
