Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve patient health by providing access to safe and efficient lab testing at the point of care, through service, technology, and education.

About Us

Point of Care testing provides a valuable service to physicians and other clinicians by assisting in the rapid diagnosis and treatment of patients.  Testing is typically performed at the patient's bedside, but may also occur in surgical suites, clinician offices, or in small decentralized laboratories. These tests are simple to perform and provide results quickly.  Point of Care testing is performed by thousands of employees throughout the Health System, including Nurses, Medical Assistants, Respiratory Therapists, Radiology Technicians, Physicians, and Laboratory Professionals.
