June 10, 2019
As a result of ongoing staff recruitment challenges, the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA) is restructuring laboratory operations to ensure timely and appropriate support to patients in our emergency departments, inpatient units and registered hospital clinics.
Community laboratory services at the Clinton Public Hospital and the Seaforth Community Hospital will no longer be offered effective Monday, June 17, 2019 until further notice. This applies to “walk-in community patients” only. Laboratory services will continue to be provided to inpatients, hospital clinic patients and the emergency department. Similar changes were made at the St Marys Memorial Hospital in March. At this time the laboratory department at Stratford General Hospital remains open for community patients. The Clinton Family Health Team will continue to offer laboratory specimen collections in their offices for rostered patients. The Huron community Family Health Team in Seaforth will direct patients to Dynacare Laboratories located in the same building.
Alternate laboratories for community patient specimen collection include the following:
We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
