Avera McKennan Lab Joins the Compass Group

SIOUX FALLS - Avera McKennan Laboratory announces its recent recognition and membership in the Compass Group. Avera is just one of 29 health system members representing more than 600 hospitals to join the Compass Group.

The Compass Group is an organization of not-for-profit Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) System Laboratory leaders who have established collaborative relationships to identify and share best practices and strategies to help ensure the survival of the not-for-profit laboratory industry. It is the only organization, physician- or management-based, looking at the operation best practices, at the human resources needs, at the value and quality of the laboratory and pathology services in the communities IDN Systems serve.

“Avera is honored to be a member of such a great organization and work in association with others such as Baylor Scott & White Health, Cleveland Clinic, Fairview Health Services, Henry Ford, Intermountain Healthcare and Scripps Health,” said Raed Sulaiman, MD, Medical Director, Avera McKennan Clinical Laboratory. “Congratulations to all who worked so diligently to achieve this membership.”
