All of HPHA's laboratories accommodate urgent and routine test requests on both inpatient and outpatients.  Depending on the type of  laboratory test ordered, the tests will be processed on-site or referred to neighboring laboratories or other specialty laboratories within the province.   Over 95% of the actual testing can be done within the highly equipped and fully accredited HPHA laboratories.

The HPHA laboratories have successfully sustained World-Class Clinical Laboratory Accreditation for 15 years.

Please note, outpatients must have a valid Health Card and requisitions must be fully completed by a Physician or Health Care Practitioner.
