Date:2/5/2008

HOLLAND, Mich., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) will experience the vital and expanding role laboratory testing plays in patient care during a tour of the clinical laboratory facilities at Holland Hospital.

Pathologist Edward Fody, MD, will host the 3 p.m. tour for Rep. Hoekstra.

"I always appreciate the opportunity to learn firsthand of Holland Hospital's new technology and equipment," said Representative Hoekstra. "Staying at the forefront of 21st Century health care with such precision goes a long way toward helping to ensure that Holland remains a healthy community."

Dr. Fody says the tour will illustrate the medical laboratory's role as a key element of patient care and show how laboratory results provide a crucial thread that runs through the entire patient care process.

"Laboratory test results drive a significant portion of clinical decisions, from diagnosis to therapy," said Dr. Fody. "This tour will underscore how the medical laboratory contributes to the maintenance of wellness, the diagnosis of illness and the treatment of disease."

A nationally recognized hospital, Holland Hospital meets the health care needs of the community by providing access to experienced specialists, cutting-edge technology and excellent patient care -- including more than half a million clinical laboratory tests annually.

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) is a medical society serving 17,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world's largest association composed exclusively of pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. The CAP is an advocate for high quality and cost-effective patient care.
