Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (April 22-26) is an annual celebration of the laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in every aspect of health care. Since they often work behind the scenes, few people know about the critical testing they perform every day. Lab Week is a time to honor the more than 300,000 medical laboratory professionals around the country who perform and interpret more than 10 billion laboratory tests in the United States every year.
The laboratory professionals working at Raymond W. Bliss Army Health Center strive every day to provide world class services to our beneficiaries. Recently the lab relocated to a newly renovated space in the basement of the health care facility. The new space provides for improved patient experience with emphasis on privacy and workflow. The community is invited to celebrate Medical Laboratory Professionals week at a ribbon cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the main entrance of the lab.
