Laboratory

HGMH is a proud member of the Eastern Ontario Regional Laboratory Association (EORLA). EORLA laboratories provide diagnostic testing to both hospital inpatients and registered outpatients, performing a total of approximately 13 million tests annually.  Sixteen local hospitals in Eastern Ontario have voluntarily come together in the interests of improved quality in patient care and to effectively manage costs.

 

EORLA’s medical laboratory professionals — medical laboratory technologists, medical laboratory assistants, physicians and scientists — are at the forefront of quality health care; up to 85 percent of decisions about a diagnosis and treatment plan are based on lab test results. Comprehensive testing in the disciplines of Anatomic Pathology, Biochemistry, Hematopathology /Transfusion Medicine, and Microbiology/Virology is performed at EORLA.  This means patients and their physicians have access to high quality and consistent results across the region.
