Our Facilities

We perform testing on state-of-the art equipment in our modern facilities at the General site. A point-of-care model testing laboratory is also located at the Branson Ambulatory Care Centre to serve the Urgent Care Centre.

Modern analyzers enable us to conduct lab tests more efficiently and quickly. Because of their greater capacity, turn around time is improved and we can get results out to doctors faster.

The laboratory information system interfaces with the hospital information system. This permits physicians who have ordered tests (for example a surgeon or obstetrician) to view test results on any patient unit. Results are faxed or mailed to North York General Hospital affiliated family physicians. We keep the physicians involved in the care of our patients and well informed about their health to support them in providing continuous, quality patient care.

Specimens get to the laboratory rapidly — they are put in a protective container and placed into a pneumatic tube system where they travel non-stop to the laboratory within minutes.
