“The focus of everything we do is creating a positive patient experience. With this significant upgrade, patient care has improved with wheelchair accessibility and the addition of draw rooms, allowing for more privacy. We can now provide a more personal experience for our patients by meeting their individual needs,” said Lissa Bryan-Smith, vice president, operations, Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital.
Besides an increase in square footage and number of rooms, the newly remodeled space also includes private pediatric and bariatric areas, storage space for lab supplies and a combined EKG and draw room – two services previously located in different areas of the hospital. The new lab collections area has become a one-stop shop for convenience and care.
“Our team views this move as an opportunity to provide an even better patient experience than before,” said Terri Leberfinger, laboratory manager, Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital. “With the resources now available to our staff, I have no doubt in my mind they’ll deliver on this goal.”
The lab hours are Monday to Friday, 6 a.m. - 6 p.m., and Saturday, 6 a.m. - 11 a.m.
