Medical laboratory professionals often work behind the scenes in a healthcare setting performing critical testing to aid physicians in making informed decisions regarding a patient’s care and treatment. St. Luke’s Health Memorial San Augustine recently recognized members of its laboratory team including (l to r) Melissa Murray, Stacey Banks, Amanda Ramsey and Kristi Arnold during National Laboratory Week.
Laboratory professionals perform tests on body fluids, interpret the results and help provide a complete picture of a patient’s health.
