LABORATORY

NEMROCK labs provide regular, specialized and urgent services to the patients at our Medical Center as well as the referred patients from the community physicians or other hospitals. We maintain awareness of the value of the service that we perform and continually seek ways in which we can improve our patient care activities and the training of our staff. We work together as a cohesive unit and recognize the overall goal of excellence in patient care whether it is through education, research or clinical activities.

We are actively involved in clinical research and strongly encourage our staff to participate in translational research studies that lead to scientific advancements and aid in early disease detection, diagnosis and the discovery and development of novel biomarkers capable of predicting disease outcome and the individualization of therapy. We attempt to foster an environment of mutual kindness, concern, consideration and compassion in the performance of our professional duties and in our interactions with clinicians and patients that we serve.
