MLO names Mary Greeley Medical Center Laboratory 2022 Lab of the Year

March 23, 2022

Medical Laboratory Observer (MLO) named Mary Greeley Medical Center Laboratory Lab of the Year (LOY) for 2022.

Mary Greeley Medical Center Laboratory excelled in the criteria MLO staff and its editorial advisory board judged the nominees on, which are customer service, productivity, teamwork, education and training, strategic outlook, and lab inspections.

Located in Ames, IA, Mary Greeley Medical Center is a 220-bed regional hospital that serves people in a 13-county area in Central Iowa. So far in fiscal year 2022, the lab is experiencing a record year, averaging 48,432 tests per month, compared with 45,151 in fiscal year 2021. This includes assays processed in chemistry, hematology, coagulation, urinalysis, microbiology, immunohematology, and immunology/serology.

Service to both providers and patients at Mary Greeley Medical Center’s lab is fostered, in part, through electronic communications using Epic’s electronic medical records system, including Beaker, the company’s laboratory information system (LIS). This allows providers with Epic and patients, through the electronic portal, to have immediate access to test results.

2022’s MLO Lab of the Year also named one runner up: Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Clinical Laboratory (CCHMC), in Cincinnati, OH.

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) is one of the oldest and most distinguished pediatric hospitals in the United States, established in 1883. The academic pediatric acute care hospital has 634 beds.

Cincinnati Children’s clinical laboratories’ customer service efforts strive to improve child health, transform delivery of care, and achieve the best medical outcomes, experience, and value for patients.

Mary Greeley Medical Center Laboratory and CCHMC are featured in the April edition of MLO.
