Laboratory Services

Samaritan Medical Center's laboratory is a full service laboratory dedicated to serving the needs of healthcare providers through a committed staff and a client focused approached. A Board-certified Pathologist directs the laboratory activities, providing supportive services in both the medical and technical areas. The SMC laboratory is staffed by nearly 60 employees, including medical technologists, medical laboratory technicians, laboratory assistants, histotechnicians, cytotechnologists and support staff.

The laboratory is staffed 24 hours a day including weekends and holidays, and performs over 1,000 tests a day. Testing includes blood tests (such as glucose and cholesterol), pathology specimens (such as PAP smears), and other specialized testing, including sweat testing for Cystic Fibrosis, and Glucose Tolerance Testing for diabetes.

Accreditation

The laboratory is accredited by the New York State Department of Health, The Joint Commission and the American Association of Blood Banks.

Specimen Processing
Specimens are processed upon receipt, and test results are rapidly reported to the client or nursing unit. Reporting times may vary, depending on the nature of the request and the amount of time required to perform the test. Many of our clients utilize electronic reporting that allows the report to print directly to the physician's office.

The Specimen Processing Area (SPA) is the "hub" of the laboratory. Initial questions regarding laboratory reports or specimen collection can be directed to the SPA (315-786-4943).
