The MMC laboratory is accredited by the Georgia Department of Human Resources, Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and The Joint Commission. These groups establish quality standards to ensure the accuracy, reliability and timeliness of patient test results. An accredited pathologist serves as the medical director.
