As a critical part of the healthcare delivery team, medical laboratory professionals provide timely and accurate tests results to aid in medical diagnoses and treatment decisions. St. Luke’s Health Memorial recently recognized members of its laboratory team during National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week.
Laboratory professionals perform tests on body fluids, interpret the results and help provide a complete picture of a patient’s health. Memorial operates a lab within the hospital as well as St. Luke’s Health Express Lab. Express Lab provides lab testing for all tests without physician orders in an outpatient setting.
