Our technologists' top priority is providing accurate and precise results to our patients' physicians. We have achieved this goal by performing regular maintenance on our equipment, following a strict in-house quality control program, using quality reagents, and paying close attention to the results we report.
The Greater Regional Medical Center Laboratory takes pride in our up-to-date instrumentation, allowing us to provide quality results in a prompt and efficient manner, combined with our desire to treat all of our patients with care and compassion, giving them the best laboratory services available today.
