Laboratory Services

The KHSC Laboratory Test Directory is a searchable tool that provides the most up to date practical information on all lab tests performed either at KHSC or through referred out sites.  This easy to use tool provides access  to all of the critical information health care providers require on lab tests including: specimen type(s) and collection,  specimen handling and transport, expected turn-around times, requisitions, and other vital requirements for the most efficient and effective processing of lab specimens.

Together, we proudly serve Southeastern Ontario by providing expert laboratory and clinical services, education and research. We strive to be national leaders in advanced diagnostic services, employee success, student achievement and knowledge discovery. In this pursuit of excellence, we value people by practicing mutual respect, professionalism, teamwork, integrity, trust and accountability.

Our team includes approximately 200 laboratorians and full complement of other staff members who all work to make sure that patients are receiving the high-quality care they require. We support patients by running tests and providing results to doctors and other members of the care team. This allows the care teams to accurately diagnose and monitor the treatment that the patient is receiving. For more information on the types of services we provide, visit our Areas of specialty page. 

The Laboratories at both sites of Kingston Health Sciences Centre are fully accredited and licensed, academic hospital laboratories. Our laboratory licence is issued by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.
