Primary Care Clinic’s laboratory accredited

MOULTRIE — Colquitt Regional Primary Care Clinic has met all criteria for a physician office laboratory accreditation by COLA, a national healthcare accreditation organization.

This 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. Providers Dr. Gary Lodge, Dr. Billy Ray Price and Dr. Michael Schmidt received announcement from COLA that their lab had exceeded its high standards.

“Receiving this accreditation was a result of a long-term commitment we all share in providing quality service to our patients, says Lodge.

COLA is approved by the federal government and sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Medical Association, and the American College of Physicians.

Upon receiving the news, Hospital President & CEO Jim Matney commended the clinic on their accreditation.

“Completing this rigorous survey provides such a positive impact on our patient care,” said Matney.

Colquitt Regional Primary Care Clinic is located at 6 Hospital Park. Hours of operation are Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1: p.m.

Patients may contact the clinic by calling 229-985-3320.

Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
