The naturopathic clinic lab services at Camden Whole Health, previously run and owned by Mercy Diagnostics, was sold to another company, MedLab in mid-April. MedLab alerted us on April 15th they would not maintain Mercy’s services in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont or Rhode Island, closing approximately 108 phlebotomy sites in New England. In order to service the phlebotomy and lab needs of our patients we are delighted to announce we have hired Mercy’s former phlebotomist, Rose Harper. Rose will be performing a number of roles in the clinic, including phlebotomy and reception services.
After interviewing over a half dozen laboratory service companies, we have selected Quest Diagnostics in Marlborough, MA to process the majority of our standard labs. We felt Quest Diagnostics offered the best combination of price, comprehensive testing, and service. Quest Diagnostics is in-network with all major insurance companies and can bill your insurance directly. In addition, we have negotiated very competitive cash prices for our patients who do not have insurance and for those whom it is financially beneficial to pay cash. Patients will be able to select cash pay or insurance options with greater price transparency.
We will continue to utilize our specialty test kits for non-standard labs, including Boston Heart, US Biotek, Medical Diagnostic Laboratories, Vibrant America, Genova, Ceres Biosciences, IGenX, Labrix, and many others to accommodate the diagnostic needs of our providers and patients.
