LAB - Saanich Peninsula Hospital - Medical Laboratory

Change in operating hours:

Island Health is working in partnership with the Ministry of Health and BC Centre for Disease Control to respond to COVID-19. The situation is evolving quickly and our strategies are evolving to keep people in the communities we serve safe.

To support the Provincial Health Officer’s directions around social distancing and to ensure laboratory staff and supplies are best positioned to respond to COVID-19, Island Health is temporarily closing some lab locations and changing the hours at others.
