The Providence Medical Center laboratory is well equipped with modern instrumentation to fulfill the diagnostic testing needs of our local physicians and our visiting specialists.
The Providence Medical Center lab is staffed on a 24-hour, 7 day a week basis to assure coverage of all emergency needs. We have achieved accreditation for complex clinical testing since the implementation of CLIA licensure in 1988, through inspection and comprehensive competency testing.
Our laboratory medical director, Dr. Julie Breiner, is a full-time clinical pathologist at Unity Point St. Luke’s in Sioux City, Iowa. She, along with the Unity Point laboratory staff, serves all of Providence Medical Center’s needs in off-site testing and pathology. They also provide daily courier service for special pickup and report delivery.
Lifeserve Blood Bank has served our blood transfusion needs since 1974. They provide excellent service, maintaining regular inventory and meeting all emergency needs of blood and blood products. They utilize the wonderful donor volunteers of Wayne and the surrounding areas to keep their inventory sufficient for their client’s needs.
Annual cholesterol and glucose screenings are offered to the public by Providence Medical Center laboratory staff. These correspond with American Heart Month every February.
