We offer a wide range of clinical experience, including HIV, hepatitis C and B virus, hematology/oncology patients, travel care, and kidney and pancreas transplant recipients.
The hospital laboratory offers a full complement of services. Assays for antimicrobial levels are done on site and monitored by a team of clinical pharmacists who provide pharmacological consultations. Most fungal and viral serologic tests are also performed in our laboratory. Our clinical microbiology offers complete isolation and identification of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, fungi, parasites, mycobacterium, mycoplasma, chlamydia and a variety of viruses. Our immunology laboratory provides the most current immunologic assays that complement our Infectious Diseases and Transplant programs.
