Effective August 30, 2021, the laboratory at the Deep River and District Hospital will resume accepting walk-in patients.
Those who have a requisition for blood work from a registered clinician may come to the laboratory Monday to Friday, between the hours of 7:30 am and 12:00 pm.
Previously scheduled appointments for blood work after August 30, 2021 will be honoured.
While at the laboratory as a walk-in patient, please remember that staff may be required to perform urgent work in the Emergency Department or on the Medical Unit, which could result in a short delay.
Pre-booked appointments are still required for Diagnostic Imaging services at the Deep River and District Hospital, including X-Rays, ultrasounds, and mammograms.
All patients coming to the organization will continue to enter and exit the building through the Main Entrance and screening station.
With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, laboratory availability was appointment based since March of 2020 in order to help limit the spread of the virus. The laboratory is now looking forward to safely welcoming back walk-in patients. The organization would like to thank everyone for continuing to adhere to public health and other safety precautions so that we may continue to support our patients and provide excellent, compassionate care during this challenging time.
