In the MMH laboratory, licensed personnel operate sophisticated clinical laboratory equipment to assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of their patients. A wide variety of quality testing is available to both inpatients and outpatients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for customer convenience. Most all procedures including chemistry, hematology, urinalysis, serology, blood bank and industrial drug screening are performed on-site allowing for rapid turn around of results.
The MMH laboratory is accredited by the Georgia Department of Human Resources, CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) and JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations). These groups establish quality standards to ensure the accuracy, reliability and timeliness of patient test results. An accredited pathologist serves as the medical director.
