Laboratory Services support our core missions of patient care, education, and research. The unique requirements of an academic medical center demand progressive laboratory services that can deliver a comprehensive test menu, state of the art diagnostic methods, rapid turnaround and consultative services not generally offered by commercial laboratories. There is a recognized value in delivering these services locally to assure continuity of care to patients we serve. Through our outreach program, these services are available to the medical community at large.

Availability and direct access to our faculty and staff for problem solving and consultation enables your success as a Health Care Provider and promotes our mutual goal of positive patient outcomes.
