Bon Secours Charity Health System facilities are now LabCorp collection stations
Good news for Port Jervis, Milford, Warwick:
Bon Secours Charity Health System facilities
are now LabCorp collection stations
Starting May 1, St. Anthony Community Hospital and Bon Secours Community Hospital will serve Orange County and Pike County as collection stations for LabCorp, the Laboratory Corporation of America.
That means LabCorp specimens can now be drawn at Bon Secours Community Hospital’s Roberta Glinton Medical Office Building in Port Jervis; at Bon Secours Health Center in Milford; and at the St. Anthony Community Hospital Laboratory in Warwick.
“Now when a doctor orders lab tests through LabCorp – blood work and the like – Warwick and Port Jervis area residents won’t have to travel to a distant LabCorp facility,” said Robert Nicoletti, Administrative Director of Laboratory Services for Bon Secours Community Hospital and St. Anthony Community Hospital.
“If your insurance company requires your blood work or other testing to be done by LabCorp, you’ll now be able to have your specimens drawn closer to home. We’ll take your specimens and send them on to LabCorp.”
Specifically, the new locations are:
* Milford: Bon Secours Health Center, 510 Routes 6 & 209; 570-296-7050
* Port Jervis: Roberta Glinton Medical Office Building, 161 E. Main St.; 845-858-7040
* Warwick: St. Anthony Community Hospital Lab, 15 Maple Ave.; 845-987-5155
“This will save people time and travel expenses,” said Nicoletti. It’s a win for doctors and a win for patients – good news for everyone.”
Also, for the convenience of patients in eastern and southern Orange County, Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, 255 Lafayette Ave., Suffern, 845-368-5173, is also now a LabCorp drawing station.
One of the nation’s leading medical laboratories, LabCorp’s 220,000 clients include physician offices, hospitals, managed care organizations, and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. LabCorp accessions more than 400,000 samples per day and annually examines in excess of 10 million cytology and 2 million surgical pathology samples.
