Happy Medical Laboratory Week!

April 5, 2023

April 9 – 15 is National Medical Laboratory Week, an opportunity to recognize and thank Women’s College Hospital’s (WCH) amazing lab team!

WCH’s Department of Laboratory Medicine is comprised of Medical Laboratory Assistants, Technologists and Pathology Assistants. They offer and oversee many tests and services, including:

  • Limited pathology
  • Chemistry
  • Point of care testing
  • Specimen collection and processing

They also provide other services offered through external organizations.

The lab team supports patient-facing clinics and departments across the hospital including surgery and fulfilling lab requisitions. WCH’s Department of Laboratory Medicine has also been accredited by Accreditation Canada Diagnostics with an ISO 15189 Plus certificate since May 2021. This accreditation is recognized around the world and is an impressive indication of the commitment to quality for staff, physicians, patients and other healthcare providers.

Thank you to WCH’s lab team for all the work you do!
