MCCH PLANS TO OPEN NEW RENOVATED LAB DEPARTMENT

Posted 05/18/2021

Murray-Calloway County Hospital recently renovated a new Clinical Laboratory Department on the first floor of the North Tower. The new Lab area will provide additional space for offices and storage, and a larger lab area giving staff the ability to do more tests efficiently. This gives our physicians the timeliest information to aid them in the diagnosis and treatment of their patients, which is crucial to the patient’s plan of care. Approximately 70% of medical decisions are based on lab results.

The Laboratory consists of Chemistry, Hematology, Blood Bank, Microbiology, and Pathology Departments all staffed with dedicated employees utilizing the most up-to-date instrumentation available to provide the most accurate and timely results.
