The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Grays Harbor Community Hospital GHCH Laboratory, Aberdeen, Washington based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The laboratories medical director, Francois M. Cady, MD, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. Grays Harbor Community Hospital GHCH Laboratory is one of more than 7,700 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
“Everything we do is for our patients, it is this focus on patient centered care that gives us the foundation for consistent quality” said Charles Skorzewski, Director of Laboratory Services.
GHCH Chief Executive Officer, Tom Jensen upon learning of the laboratory’s accreditation, said: “Our laboratory and its two blood draw stations set the standard for quality patient care; this accreditation is testament to their hard work and commitment.”
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s 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 records, and overall management.

Do you feel that? It’s tightness in your knees as you bend down to lace your shoes. It’s a throbbing in your knuckles as you type an email to your family back east. It’s an aching feeling that takes over your body every time you bend, and it’s debilitating. The most common form of joint pain, especially for seniors over the age of 65, is arthritis. With chronic disease being the leading cause of death and disability in the United States and more than 100 types of rheumatic diseases and conditions classified as arthritis, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend preventative care as a person’s best defense.
The first and second time Dr. Gifford traveled to Haiti he was in college on a mission trip with his church. He wasn’t a medical student yet, but he already knew he wanted to help people. It was on his first trip that Dr. Gifford immersed himself in the culture and learned the Creole language — a skill that would aid him in future trips to the Caribbean country.
