Hillcrest South's medical laboratory recently received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) after a rigorous on-site inspection. During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory's records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record and overall management.

Hillcrest South has constructed a new CT suite around the patient experience. The suite includes a new CT machine, which uses state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) technology to scan patients more accurately and quickly. The result for the patients is a more accurate image and a faster scan experience at South. There are also ultrasound machines in the suite, and a much larger area around the machines, which allows for more space and privacy for patients.
