It's National Laboratory Professionals week, and we'd like you to get to know the Laboratory Services Team at King's Daughters. There are 140 team members in the Lab serving invaluable roles that include pathologists, medical laboratory technicians, phlebotomists, histotechnicians, grossing technicians, clerical and couriers.
"The Lab team is a strong support mechanism for healthcare providers to better diagnose and treat our patients," said Shawn Boggs, Laboratory Services director. "We maintain and set quality goals and standards to provide World-Class Care to our patients."
Meet Brianna Lyons, Medical Technologist in Hematology
Brianna's career began with King's Daughters almost 11 years ago. "My favorite part of my job is working 'the bench' and being able to perform complex laboratory procedures," she said.
In college, Brianna initially majored in physical therapy but with the help of a college counselor determined she had an aptitude for science and lab work. "When I spoke with the medical laboratory director, I was thrilled and intrigued," said Brianna. "I found the program challenging and interesting."
The tests that medical laboratory scientists complete are crucial to the diagnosis and treatment of each patient," said Brianna. "The Lab team is behind the scenes striving to perform accurate tests and complete complex procedures that save lives."
