National Lab Week

April 19-24 is Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, an annual celebration of the laboratory professionals and pathologists who play a vital role in every aspect of healthcare.

San Luis Valley Health’s labs will be hosting events for visitors and staff throughout the week. 

Wednesday: Refreshments will be served at 10:30 a.m. in the lab corridor. 

Friday: International Cuisine Contest with entries by lab staff.  There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rdplace.  Staff will be allowed to come by at 2:30 p.m. to sample the entries.

All Week: There will be a contest where participants match pictures of lab staff’s pets with their owners.   We will be giving patients a small token of our thanks throughout the week.  The team will also be available to answer questions about the new Direct to Consumer services they are offering.

We hope that you will participate in this fun week to celebrate our laboratory professionals and all of the great work they do!  If you have any questions, please call Lab Director Mary Rice at (719) 587-1225 or Brent Lehto at CCH Lab at (719) 274-6021.
