New, State of the Art Midwest Lab Opens!
OB/GYN of Indiana, A Division of Axia Women’s Health, is pleased to announce the official opening of the Axia Women’s Health Midwest Lab which will be greater than six times the current space of the physician-owned clinical laboratory in Indiana.
This new 7089 square foot facility located in Carmel, IN will offer state of the art high performing clinical analyzers that will allow lab personnel the opportunity to perform rapid serum pregnancy tests and STD testing and deliver results the same day. They will also continue to process general wellness tests including cholesterol screening, thyroid tests, and vitamin levels. Working in the lab will be eight certified medical lab technicians, cytotechnologists and hystotechnologists.
Lab Director, Verna McGuire, who has over 28 years of experience stated, “This has truly been an exciting development for our clinical lab services taking us to a new level by offering more comprehensive women’s health testing such as cytology and histology. This greatly increases the number of patients we can serve throughout the Midwest region.”
Our turnkey lab approach includes phlebotomists onsite to administer blood draws conveniently at our care centers and the fast turn-around of highly accurate results to our patients. Currently, the lab is COLA-accredited and College of American Pathology (CAP) accreditation is in process and expected in mid-2021.
Tim Dykema, Senior Vice President said, “The ability of our Indiana team in conjunction with colleagues from the Axia corporate office, to build this high-tech lab and make it operational at record speed, even with the challenges of COVID-19, is truly remarkable and a true example of living out our mission to be a more caring, connected and progressive women’s health provider.”
