Celebrating National Medical Laboratory Week at LifeLabs

Toronto, April 10, 2023 – LifeLabs is excited to recognize and celebrate our 7,000+ talented and dedicated lab employees across Canada on this 38th annual National Medical Laboratory Week. 

“I am incredibly proud of our LifeLabs team,” said Charles Brown, President and CEO of LifeLabs. “The stories I hear from our customers, thankful for the expert and compassionate care they received from our staff, inspire me. They deserve all the recognition and thanks.” 

Most LifeLabs customers meet our team members by visiting one of our 357 Patient Service Centres in Ontario, British Columbia and Saskatchewan. But do you know of our colleagues behind the scenes and on the road? 

Our Mobile team delivers care closer to home by visiting Long Term Care facilities, remote northern communities, homecare patients and private residences to collect samples where they live. 

The Logistics team works around the clock to safely and efficiently transport specimens and supplies across the province to provide seamless care and high-quality results. 

Our Laboratory Operations crew consists of specimen experts, scientists, doctors, and technicians who test, analyze and document samples 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

We have team members in Client Services, Materials Management and Specimen Management with tremendous customer impact that often goes unnoticed. Without them, there would be no LifeLabs. 

“The team at LifeLabs are the top experts in the industry who live our values of teamwork and collaboration,” said Jennifer Cudlipp, COO and Interim CFO at LifeLabs. “Listening to and supporting new ideas have resulted in innovation that positively impacts the customer experience. It’s been incredible to witness. I wish everyone a Happy Med Lab Week. Thank you for all you do.”
