We are pleased to announce that the laboratory in Peterborough Regional Health Care has achieved ISO 15189 Plus™ accreditation. In choosing this option, a laboratory sends a clear signal of commitment to quality for staff, patients, and other healthcare providers.
Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) is a state-of-the-art regional hospital with a proud local history extending back over a century. The Health Centre is located in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada – a 90-minute drive north-east of Toronto.
The staff of the Laboratory Medicine department provides timely and accurate laboratory testing for PRHC and other hospitals in the region. The laboratory has recently installed an automated robotic track system for samples and four new major analyzers for patient testing. This computerized automation helps to reduce the potential risk of specimen identification errors and keeps specimen analysis moving through the laboratory at an even pace.
