CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., April 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MedLabs Diagnostics, one of the country's fastest growing independent diagnostic

laboratories, announced today their accreditation by the College of American Pathologists as well as entry into several in-network contracts including Blue Cross and Blue Shield CareFirst.

"These new network partnerships as well as recognition

of our quality by the College of American Pathologists are key steps in our transition from a regional laboratory into a national reference laboratory," said Nick Mitilenes, President and Chief Operating Officer of MedLabs. 

MedLabs' CareFirst participation includes PPO products in their entire service area which includes Maryland, Washington D.C., and Northern Virginia.  MedLabs has also entered into other network contracts which cover all fifty states across a wide variety of insurance types.

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, is recognized by the U.S. federal government as being equal-to or more-stringent-than their own inspection program.  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 for the preceding two years.  CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
