COLA is a physician-directed organization whose purpose is to promote excellence in laboratory medicine and patient care through a program of voluntary education, consultation, and accreditation. COLA helps us ensure accurate test results, run our lab in accordance with quality systems, and meet CLIA accreditation requirements in order to serve our patients better.
This prestigious award is only given 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 with zero deficiencies. Golden Triangle Emergency Center has earned the COLA Laboratory Excellence Award, a result of the hard work from their new Lab Lead, Jenna Mueller, EMT-P and Director of Nurses, Annie Kovatch, RN.
Jenna is a certified paramedic and has been with GTEC for over 4 years. She recently took on the responsibility of Lab Lead and worked tirelessly to earn a perfect score with COLA for Golden Triangle Emergency Center – Orange.
Golden Triangle Emergency Center’s goal is always to provide the resources, including health information our community needs to stay safe and healthy. However, when sickness or injuries strike, Golden Triangle Emergency Center is here 24/7, 365 days a year with gold standard in emergency and industrial care.
