A unique and innovative model
Bio-Test Laboratory opening in the Orléans Health Hub on November 11
The laboratory services will initially be available for clients of the Hub only
Orléans, November 10, 2021 - Bio-Test Laboratory is pleased to announce its partnership with the Orléans Health Hub as the selected community laboratory partner for the innovative, state-of-the-art, modern healthcare facility, servicing the Ottawa East community.
As the region’s only locally owned and operated community medical laboratories, Bio-Test Laboratory has been proudly servicing the needs of physicians and patients in the Ottawa and surrounding area for over 50 years.
Clients and physicians of the Orléans Health Hub will greatly benefit by having access to essential laboratory services on-site, in both official languages, with quick turnaround times, as most of the laboratory testing is performed locally at Bio-Test’s main lab in Ottawa West.
Laboratory services that will be offered at the Orléans Health Hub include blood tests, ECGs (starting in the near future) and other routine laboratory investigations. Patients will also be able to access their own results on-line, as Bio-Test has developed a secured patient portal for patrons of the Orléans Health Hub.
For now, only current Orléans Health Hub clients have access to the laboratory services. This means that if a client is followed by a specialist at the Hub and a lab test is required, the person can have their test done on site and avoid an additional trip.
At the moment, the lab operating hours are 8 a.m. to noon, Monday to Friday. To access the laboratory, clients must enter the building through the North Entrance, answer the COVID-19 screening questions and wear the surgical mask handed to them. The laboratory is in the waiting room of Wing A (yellow), on the left once in the main hallway. Parking is free at the Hub.
Community members who are not currently clients of the Hub and are looking for Bio-Test lab services nearby can visit the Bio-Test point of service located at 4289 Innes Road in Orléans. Parking is free in designated laboratory spaces.
Bio-Test Laboratory and all team members look forward to serving the community of the Orléans Health Hub starting on November 11, 2021.
