Accreditation is only given to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality day-to-day operations and demonstrate continuing accuracy in performance and proficiency testing. Staff must also pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey. Cox Health Center has earned COLA accreditation as a result of long-term commitment to provide quality service to its patients.
