Mercy Medical Center’s Laboratory Services Nominated for Best of 2012 Clinical Lab Facilities
Mercy Medical Center is proud to announce that the Department of Laboratory Services has been nominated for Best of 2012 Clinical Lab Facilities. Best of 2012 Clinical Lab Facilities is a special recognition program within the clinical lab industry and is sponsored by CLP (Clinical Lab Products) Magazine. Medical laboratories are nominated by their peers, and selected by a panel of industry experts. Selection for this honor is based on how well the lab redefines the industry’s best practices to provide the best quality service to clinicians and patients.
Mercy’s Department of Laboratory Services is comprised of two full service laboratories: Dunes Medical Laboratories located in Dakota Dunes and the hospital laboratory located within Mercy Medical Center. The nomination for this recognition stemmed from the coordination of instrumentation and operations between Mercy’s two laboratory locations and also for continued significant improvement in turn around time in the delivery of troponin results. The troponin test is a key marker used to diagnose myocardial infarction (heart attack).
Mercy’s Department of Laboratory Services will be listed in the August 2012 issue of CLP Magazine. CLP is a magazine that focuses exclusively on products and technology for the clinical lab industry and reaches a nationwide audience of over 42,000 clinical lab professionals.
