Monument Health receives COLA Laboratory Excellence Award

RAPID CITY, SD (Oct. 10, 2022) – Laboratories at Monument Health Orthopedic and Specialty Hospital and Monument Health Rapid City Urgent Care, Jackson Blvd. received the COLA Laboratory Excellence Award. COLA is a leading national laboratory accreditor, whose program and standards enable clinical laboratories and staff to meet U.S. Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and other regulatory requirements.

Accreditation is given to laboratories that apply the highest standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of proficiency testing, and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey. The Excellence Award is awarded to only 11 percent of surveyed labs to accredited laboratories that are found to be compliant with all COLA essential and required criteria during their on-site survey. Additionally, award recipients must have demonstrated successful proficiency testing for the prior three testing events with no substantiated complaints against the laboratory.
