Medical Laboratory Professionals Week is an annual celebration of the laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in every aspect of health care. Since they often work behind the scenes, few people realize the critical work they contribute to the field of medicine. Lab Week is a time to honor the more than 300,000 medical lab professionals around the country and right here at PAH who perform and interpret more than ten billion laboratory tests annually in the US.
The PAH Lab has been through many changes over past year as part of the Private Room Initiative and facility upgrades.
This move has benefited each lab, and ultimately patient care, by improving facilities and operational management. Each individual lab has improved efficiency thanks to a more strategic layout and increased space. The improved facility design has enabled staff to streamline processes and better manage their time.
