Gainesville, FL, August 29, 2017 --( The Cardiac & Vascular Institute (TCAVI) has met all criteria for Laboratory Accreditation by COLA, a national healthcare accreditation organization. Accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid 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 Cardiac & Vascular Institute has earned COLA accreditation as a result of a long-term commitment to provide quality service to its patients.

“Accreditation was obtained as the result of extremely hard work from multiple dedicated employees,” says TCAVI’s Lab Director and Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Jay Koons.

COLA is a nonprofit, physician-directed organization promoting quality and excellence in medicine and patient care through programs of voluntary education, achievement, and accreditation.
