Heritage Valley Health System was one of the first in the Tri State area to have Chemistry automation and has become a showcase for other facilities. The system analyzes over 5,000 samples daily and operates around the clock.

Hematology automation and even Blood Bank automation have followed eliminating many manual steps that the laboratory technologist would have previously preformed allowing them to focus on the quality monitors and the accuracy of results.

Our lab system is fully computerized and uses bar code technology to ensure patient safety throughout the entire analytical process by doing the correct test on the correct patient. Results are available automatically to our physicians through an interface to our Electronic Health Record and to Health Link which translates to better patient care.
