BRAMPTON, ON, Sept. 30, 2015 /CNW/ - Dynacare is pleased to announce that it now provides laboratory collection services in the Township of Russell.
This service is the first of its kind to serve the Township of Russell and surrounding communities, meeting a demonstrated and requested need for laboratory services in this area. By providing this service, Dynacare will enhance patient care by allowing clients to have blood and other types of medical specimens collected for laboratory testing in a timely and convenient manner. Clinicians will also be able to receive results digitally in real time.
The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care recently identified the Township of Russell as a high priority area to increase patient accessibility as patients previously had to travel up to 40 KM away from the region for any laboratory services.
Patients can now go to 869 Notre Dame Street, Embrun on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 110 Craig Street, Russell on Wednesday between 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
