Laboratory Services

Hotel Dieu Hospital has four laboratory service areas; they are located in the GI Function Unit, Mohs Clinic and two Specimen (Blood) Collection Centers*. Our laboratories received accredited status in 2013.  Our laboratory license is issued by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.

On Jan. 12, we hosted four accreditors from the Institute for Quality Management in Healthcare (IQMH), on site to observe our labs and speak with staff about Point-of-Care Testing processes/equipment, plus quality controls around specimen collection/transportation. Assessed on 472 indicators, we successfully met the rigorous, objective evaluation in accordance with international standards, renewing our Medical Laboratory License for another four years.  The IQMH team was impressed with the organized flow provided by the professional, friendly staff that represented Hotel Dieu during the assessment.  Standout learning moments identified by the IQMH team were their introduction to the Mohs Lab and the uniqueness of the GI Function Lab.  Congratulations.

*Specimen collection service is for patients attending specialized hospital clinics only.
