California hospital 1st to earn new Joint Commission recognition

Torrance (Calif.) Memorial Medical Center is the first to receive the Leading Laboratories designation from The Joint Commission and the American Society for Clinical Pathology. 

It's a two-year designation that "serves as proof of Torrance Memorial's commitment to laboratory excellence and to help improve patient outcomes," The Joint Commission said in a Sept. 27 news release. 

To receive the recognition, the hospital had to demonstrate excellence in four areas: elevating quality outcomes, supporting professional development, cultivating trusted leadership and promoting laboratory visibility. 

The designation is available to all Joint Commission accredited hospital laboratories.
