Temporary reduction of walk-in services at Campbell River outpatient lab

In order to ensure reliable, consistent acute and outpatient laboratory service, Island Health has made the decision to temporarily not allow walk-in patients at the Campbell River outpatient lab located in North Island Hospital Campbell River on Saturday, October 8. 

Inpatient lab work, emergency sample collections and sample drop off will continue during normal Saturday hours 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

We acknowledge the inconvenience of this temporary change and appreciate people’s patience as we work to support acute and outpatient services. During this temporary reduction, patients requiring walk-in outpatient lab services can attend the LifeLabs location in Courtenay. 

The Campbell River outpatient lab will resume walk-in operations on October 11, 2022.
