More Information

The Laboratory is committed to high standards as developed through good professional practice and a quality management system to facilitate continuous improvement of the laboratory processes in the interest of quality patient care. 70 – 80% of patient’s medical history is made up of laboratory tests.

We provide lab services for Emo, Rainy River and La Verendrye Hospital with a courier service to deliver samples at noon from Monday – Friday.

Medical laboratory technologists analyze blood, body fluids and other specimens at the request of the physician. Testing is provided only with an order from the physician or nurse practitioner. The results of the laboratory tests are used to help diagnose, treat, monitor and prevent a disease. We are Registered Health Professionals belonging to the College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario. Our Accreditation Status is a 4 year award, which takes us to 2014.

We provide services on site with state of the art technology in four disciplines:

  1. Chemistry – chemical analysis of body fluids to access body function (Kidney Liver, Thyroid, Cardiac & Pregnancy
  2. Hematology – is the study of blood and blood producing tissues to diagnose conditions such as anemia, bleeding disorders, leukemia and myeloproliferative disorder.
  3. Blood Bank – Immunohematology provides compatible blood and blood products.
  4. Microbilogy – identify bacteria that cause infection and help determine antibiotics that will work or identify the “Super Bugs” that are resistant to many antibiotics.

Tests not done on site are referred to specialty labs in Kenora, Thunder Bay and Toronto.
