Laboratory Walk-Ins and Non-Urgent Diagnostic Imaging Services Resumed


Effective Monday, February 7, 2022, 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 February 7, 2022 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.

The Diagnostic Imaging Department has also resumed non-urgent X-Rays, ultrasounds, and mammograms, but pre-booked appointments are required. Family Doctors or Nurse Practitioners will fax requisitions to the Diagnostic Imaging Department, who will then call patients to schedule an appointment.

All patients coming to the organization will continue to enter and exit the building through the Main Entrance and screening station.

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.
