Our April Lab of the Month is the shared Sinai Health/UHN microbiology lab. Their team went from 250,000 tests annually to providing an additional half a million COVID-19 tests, as well as being the first lab to offer COVID-19 testing without PHOL confirmations in Ontario. If a lab is down for any reason or as backlogs increase, they have offered to shoulder the load and get Ontario back on track and have served Ontarians from Windsor to Niagara to Pembroke to Sioux Lookout and everywhere in between.
We featured their incredible team in our latest issue of the ADVOCATE - read it here:
We're also highlighting their great work and sharing their story on this month's episode of the Dish. We spoke with Dr. Tony Mazzulli, Microbiologist-in-Chief and Infectious Diseases Specialist, Christine Bruce, Senior Director, Laboratory Medicine Program, and Jessica Bourke, Lab Manager, about what they’ve seen change and what they hope for the future, one year and over 2 million COVID-19 tests later.
