Lab Director Program


Your Source for Medical Laboratory Directors

Lighthouse Lab Services supplies qualified part-time medical lab directors to over 150 CLIA-accredited labs nationwide. This service is ideal for small labs and startups seeking help with the complex monthly reports required for state and federal regulatory compliance. With extensive experience and a thorough understanding of the state and federal regulatory considerations related to medical laboratories, we are your source for qualified, cost-effective medical lab director services.

How Does It Work?

We supply part-time medical lab directors who will review your SOPs and sign off on changes, monthly quality control logs, and perform all other appropriate responsibilities as dictated by CLIA. Our medical lab directors complete these functions through a combination of remote and on-site involvement. Most monthly tasks can be completed remotely, but our part-time lab directors will be on-site at your lab at least once per quarter and for all inspections.
