Medical Laboratory Services

We are pleased to be a part of providing you with your health care needs.  Your use of the Medical Laboratory Service helps to sustain your public health care system.

Our public labs perform more than 4 million diagnostic tests on over 225,000 patients annually.

Your local hospital has satellite laboratories (specimen collection facilities) both inside each hospital and in the community where you can have your blood work done, or drop off samples.

All lab requisitions are accepted and welcome.
