Pathology

August 15 2022
**Update on Turn Around Times** As the province enters the post-pandemic recovery, Anatomical Pathology at LifeLabs has faced an unpreceded surge in testing demand resulting in turnaround times beyond our desired targets. While this issue has been felt across labs both regionally and nationally we continue to address the situation with additional staffing and revised workflows. We recognize the added burden that extended laboratory turnaround time places on the clinical management of patients. To uphold our high patient care standards, we maintain an urgent specimen turnaround time of five business days with a rigorous system in place to ensure specimens are triaged and managed according to clinical needs. Thank you for your continued support in identifying urgent samples when clinically indicated. Supported by our laboratory staff and Pathologists, we aim to get back on track to serve your needs very soon. Should you require any further information, please contact our Ontario Medical Director, Dr. Catherine Ross at Catherine.Ross@lifelabs.com
