Nominate your lab for MLO’s 2016 “Lab of the Year” award

Dec. 23, 2015

Medical Laboratory Observer (MLO) is gearing up, once again, to honor three outstanding clinical laboratories!

A first-prize winner and two runners-up will be selected and featured in the April 2016 issue of MLO.

What are the “requirements” to be a Lab of the Year (LOY) nominee?

  • All nominations must be original and exclusive to MLO and not have been submitted, either original or edited, to any other publication or online media outlet currently or within the previous year.
  • Clinical labs of any size and location are eligible for consideration.
  • Most broadly, you will want to demonstrate your lab’s contributions to quality patient care.
  • Beyond that, consider the categories under which you are asked to describe your lab: customer service, productivity, teamwork, education and training, strategic outlook and lab inspections.
  • Emphasize what is particularly successful about your lab, in terms of engaging with and responding to the needs of your community, contributing to the success of the larger institution, meeting an unaddressed need, making a difference in people’s lives.
  • What makes your lab outstanding, and what makes your lab special?

The MLO team looks forward to reading about some exemplary and inspiring labs—and celebrating in print how three of them are having a positive impact on the profession and on patient care in their communities.

See the LOY banner on the MLO homepage for full submission details.
