Clinical Testing and Pathology Medicine Lab
Enabling faster, high-quality diagnostics
As one of only a few laboratories owned by physician groups in the nation, Summit Health's new clinical testing and pathology medicine lab enables timely, accurate diagnostic testing to inform medical decisions for residents in New Jersey and the New York metropolitan area.
The Woodland Park laboratory uses cutting-edge, highly automated technology typically only found at large reference labs offering high-throughput testing. The 50,000-square-foot site features a core lab, microbiology, molecular and anatomic pathology departments, and shell space to accommodate future growth. This new facility expands testing offerings for Summit Health providers beyond routine tests to now include allergy, autoimmune, urine drug toxicology for pain management, advanced women's health diagnostics, and oncologic support to identify hard-to-detect illnesses such as multiple myeloma.
Operating 24-hours a day and 365 days of the year, the lab offers faster turnaround times and optimal quality control for the full menu of tests performed on-site, meeting Summit Health's long-standing commitment to providing the highest quality care at low cost to its patients.
Flad designed the lab, conference rooms, offices, and staff amenity and support spaces to optimize workflows; support space adjacencies; meet safety/containment, security, and regulatory standards; and enhance flexibility of space for future shifts and growth.
