Cabell Huntington Hospital, a member of Mountain Health Network, has received Laboratory Accreditation status from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM). The hospital first achieved AANEM accreditation in 2018.

The accreditation standards evaluate the diagnostic services and clinical operations essential to providing quality patient care, which include:
