At Princeton Community Hospital, our laboratory provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient testing services. Our mission is to provide outstanding quality care with the most reliable results and exceptional customer service. This is achieved through the adherence to well-established policies and procedures that meet the highest standards of professional excellence through the utilization of national performance benchmarks set forth by the accrediting bodies of the CAP (College of American Pathologists) and CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act).
Our vision is to become the leading provider of quality healthcare services in our community by striving to improve the satisfaction of our patients, providers, and employees. This is accomplished by providing an extensive array of laboratory tests, from routine screenings and diagnostic tests to highly complex test results, that are vital to the diagnosis, treatment planning, and monitoring for every disease. Many of our test results are reported to the provider within minutes of collection when results are crucial to our patients’ care. Our laboratory professionals utilize the most advanced technology available and are driven by a commitment to enhance the quality of care for patients in all areas of healthcare and to serve the needs of our providers and patients timely and accurately.
