A fully accredited laboratory
ECMC’s Department of Laboratory Medicine is a comprehensive, full-range service and reference laboratory that handles approximately three million tests every year. In addition to testing patients at ECMC, all our off-site primary and care centers, we also perform tests for other area hospitals, HMOs, health agencies and private physicians. Our services include general testing, specialized testing, limited and extended general health screens, organ and disease-oriented test groupings and a complete range of HIV testing and women's healthcare needs for cervical cytology and molecular diagnosis of infective agents.
We are licensed and accredited by several agencies and organizations, including the New York State Department of Health, the Joint Commission on Hospital Accreditation, and the American Association of Blood Banks. We participate in a proficiency test program and consistently score extremely high for accuracy. In addition, many of our staff members are board certified in their medical specialty and are affiliated with the University at Buffalo’s School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Doctoral-level clinical scientists and physicians oversee the department’s clinical operations. Quality assurance (QA), quality management (QM) and continuous quality improvement (CQI) measures are consistently followed to strengthen our service delivery and ensure accurate testing.
The major divisions of the department include:
- Anatomic pathology and cytology
- Biochemistry and clinical toxicology
- Hematology and blood bank
- Microbiology and immunology
- Phlebotomy services
The Department of Laboratory Medicine participates with Medicare, Medicaid and all major insurances and also offers competitive rates for self-pay patients.
