Clifton-Fine Hospital offers a full-service laboratory dedicated to providing patients and healthcare providers with fast, accurate results. Our team is comprised of a Medical Laboratory Director and a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, both licensed by the state of New York. The laboratory performs blood draws and specimen collection for both inpatients and outpatients. Our facility is accredited by the New York State Department of Health and the American Association of Blood Banks.

The laboratory is staffed 24 hours a day including weekends and holidays. Testing includes blood tests (such as glucose, cholesterol and blood gas analysis), pathology specimens (such as PAP smears), and other specialized testing, including therapeutic drug monitoring. Specimens collected but not tested onsite are sent to LabCorp and Samaritan Medical Center’s Pathology Department.

Clifton-Fine Hospital’s laboratory recently upgraded its Sysmex Hematology Analyzer. This vital piece of equipment screens for anemia and infection by measuring white and red blood cell counts, HGB and HCT.
