Wadsworth Center for Laboratories and Research: Oversight of Clinical Laboratories

The Wadsworth Center for Laboratories and Research licenses and monitors more than 600 clinical laboratories in New York. In our prior audit report 93-S-12, we found that the Center's monitoring efforts were duplicated in New York City by the City Department of Health. We recommended that State and City oversight be consolidated. In our follow-up review, we found that this recommendation had been implemented. 95-F-39
