This European distinction certifies that the service complies with the best laboratory and practices, thus becoming the first accredited laboratory in the Algarve in this area.

For Dr Hugo Mendonça Café, Cardiologist and the greatest promoter of this project, it is important to highlight that “this accreditation is voluntary, that is, it is not mandatory for the operation of the Laboratory. However, they wanted this achievement as a way of recognising structured work and, above all, as a promoter of continuous improvement in the quality of services they provide. This process was achieved with the dedication of an extended team, which includes Administration and Clinical Management, but in which they wish to highlight Dr. Pedro Cordeiro and Cardio-Pulmonary Technician Marta Leitão.
