Outpatient lab collection service being moved to Thursday

The service, at the Sicamous Health Centre, is being moved from Mondays to Thursdays, starting in Nov. 7

  • Nov. 6, 2013 6:00 a.m.

Interior Health will be changing the day for its outpatient lab collection service in Sicamous to better accommodate residents.

The service, at the Sicamous Health Centre, is being moved from Mondays to Thursdays, starting in Nov. 7

The new hours will be from 8:30 to 11 a.m., and from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. No appointment is required.

The move by Interior Health to reschedule from the current date and hours of operation, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., is due to statutory holidays often falling on a Monday.

Interior Health states the change in days and hours of operation will provide for enhanced and consistent access to outpatient lab services. Patients will be able to access lab services over their lunch break, and on a consistent day in the week.

For more information, contact the Shuswap Outpatient Lab at 250-803-4501.
