During the week of April 24-30, 2022, we celebrate our Laboratories! Medical Laboratory Professionals Week occurs each year in the last full week of April since 1975.
Spectrum Health Laboratories is a wonderful collection of over 1,000 employees. Our CAP accredited laboratories consist of Pathologists, PhD Clinical Advisors, Lab Scientists, Techs, and Support Teams (includes Phlebotomy, Central Processing, Assistants, Outreach, Administrative and Management).
We have 13 hospital labs supporting 16 counties in West Michigan plus Spectrum Health Reference Laboratory and Advanced Technology Laboratory.
We performed over 8.9 million tests in 2021 of which 526,000 were COVID specimens.
