• Bookmarks: 20

Juan F. Luis Hospital and Medical Center CEO Douglas Koch has issued a statement announcing recent accomplishments of the laboratory and radiology departments.

JFL said the Laboratory Department went through a successful re-accreditation survey with the Joint Commission, a U.S.-based nonprofit tax-exempt 501 organization that accredits more than 22,000 U.S. health care organizations and programs. JFL said the re-accreditation was performed between July 27-29.

According to the release, the work performed by the laboratory team in accordance with required standards to continuously provide laboratory testing services for the hospital was well noted by the surveyor. As part of continuous improvement, the corrective action plan will be submitted for approval to complete the re-accreditation process, JFL said.

The hospital said the Mammography Imaging Services of the Radiology Department completed a successful annual inspection with the Food and Drug Administration on August 8, and also received a three-year accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR) Committee on Mammography Accreditation of the Commission on Quality and Safety.

“While the laboratory and radiology departments took the center stage for most of these surveys, JFL recognizes that these are organizational accomplishments and thanks all  departments that contributed to the overall success of these programs,” the hospital said in the statement. “These accomplishments are significant milestones for the organization and more so signify the commitment of the Laboratory and Radiology departments in collaboration with key stakeholders to successfully maintain the required standards to ensure the quality of the services provided to their patients.”
