WMCC offers onsite laboratory and pharmacy services to meet cancer patients’ needs with the utmost convenience. By having these services all under one roof, the cancer care teams can communicate with one another more effectively and results are available quickly.
Our onsite, CLIA certified state-of-the-art laboratory was established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to ensure the quality, reliability, and accuracy of laboratory facilities. The laboratory is staffed with licensed Clinical Laboratory Scientists (CLS) and phlebotomists. Blood is drawn by the phlebotomists and taken directly to the lab where the CLS processes the specimens and perform the requested tests on sophisticated instruments. Results are delivered to the appropriate physician, usually while the patient is still in-house. This efficiency decreases patient anxiety and waiting time.
Our onsite infusion pharmacy, located on the 2nd floor, provides medications administered just steps away in the infusion room. It is staffed with pharmacists and technicians who specialize in preparing chemotherapy agents. These experienced specialists are available to answer questions about specific drug therapies including how a medication works, possible side effects and drug interactions.
