The on-site laboratory services and extensive lab network at Austin Urgent and Family Care provide our patients with a cost effective alternative to hospital laboratories. Our long term commitment to laboratory service excellence has enabled our facility to achieve COLA Laboratory Accreditation.
COLA is a non-profit, physician-directed, national healthcare accreditation organization that strictly evaluates the quality of day-to-day laboratory facility operations and demands continued accuracy in proficiency testing performance.
Approved by the federal government and sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American Society of Internal Medicine and the American Osteopathic Association, COLA is dedicated to promoting quality and excellence in medicine and patient care through voluntary education, achievement and accreditation. In order to achieve accreditation, our facility had to uphold the highest industry standards and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey.
