Dedicated and highly-trained professionals continuously strive to improve efficiency and turnaround times, with an overall goal of satisfying clinicians and the patients they manage. The team consists of a physician medical director, an administrative director, medical technologists, medical laboratory technicians, clerical and processing staff, and phlebotomists.

The laboratory was designed with a decided emphasis on workflow efficiency with input from the technical staff.
