Emporia, VA – In recognition of Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (MLPW), April 19 - 25, 2015, Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center (SVRMC) would like to recognize the Laboratory Staff, and thank them for the pivotal role they play in the delivery of healthcare within the organization.

Since the 1920’s, the role of the medical laboratory professional has become increasingly important in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease.  A medical laboratory professional is a healthcare professional who performs chemical, hematological, immunologic, microscopic and bacteriologic diagnostic analysis on tissue, blood and other body fluids.  Using sophisticated, biomedical equipment and complex analysis, laboratory professionals can detect cancer, identify viruses and bacteria, and measure glucose, cholesterol and drug levels to name a few.  Even though doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals depend on laboratory professionals every day to perform tests and interpret the results for a better understanding of the patient’s condition, many in the public fail to recognize the essential contributions of these dedicated men and women who are so often behind the scenes.

Celebrated annually during the last week of April, Medical Laboratory Professionals Week recognizes the more than 300,000 medical laboratory professionals across the country who perform and interpret more than 10 billion laboratory tests in the United States each year.
