Langevin, Governor Lincoln Chafee, Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth H. Roberts, and their staffs for a laboratory tour and luncheon at its headquarters at 211 Circuit Drive in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. On Thursday, April 28 Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin will tour Dominion's laboratory at 1 p.m.
Dominion invited the State's elected officials to celebrate National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (NMLPW) sponsored by the American Society for Clinical Pathology along with its staff of almost 200 laboratory and administrative professionals. Dominion's management appreciates the opportunity to demonstrate the Company's important role within the health care services industry and the Rhode Island community.
For healthcare providers today, the need for fast, accurate and cost-effective drug monitoring solutions is a given. The challenge lies in correctly interpreting laboratory test results -- and applying them in a way that enhances the delivery of patient care and promotes the safe and effective use of medications.
"Dominion's mission is to create comprehensive monitoring programs that support the unique needs of our clients and to promote successful patient outcomes," said Mark A. McSally, Esq., Dominion's Vice President of Operations. "It is an honor to provide our State officials with a glimpse of how Dominion is enhancing health care in our community and at large."
NMLPW is an annual celebration of the medical laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in every aspect of health care. Laboratory professionals often work behind the scenes, but the critical testing they perform every day saves lives, reduces morbidity, and helps control health care costs. Dominion Diagnostics is proud to support NMLPW and proud to honor its employees alongside more than 300,000 additional medical laboratory professionals around the country who perform and interpret more than 10 billion laboratory tests in the United States every year.
