The HPHA laboratories have successfully sustained World-Class Clinical Laboratory Accreditation for over 15 years.
Please note, outpatients must have a valid Health Card and requisitions must be fully completed by a Physician or Health Care Practitioner.
Service Adjustment: Please note that as a result of ongoing staff recruitment challenges community laboratory services at Clinton Public Hospital, Seaforth Community Hospital and St. Marys Memorial Hospital are no longer offered until further notice. Laboratory services will continue to be provided to inpatients, hospital clinic patients and the emergency department.
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.
