ABILENE — A laboratory survey conducted on May 23 showed no deficiencies for the laboratory at Memorial Hospital in Abilene.
Most labs usually get at least a couple of deficiencies, and zero is difficult to achieve.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulates all laboratory testing (except research) performed on humans in the United States through the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). The CLIA program is a Federal regulatory oversight program, the intent of which is to ensure the quality of all laboratory testing on humans in the United States for health purposes.
“This is great news, and a huge congratulations goes to Stephanie Rogers and her laboratory staff for all the tremendous work they have put in over the past three months,” said Harold Courtois, Memorial Health System CEO.
