Head of the Laboratory, mgr Alicja Baran

The Diagnostic Laboratory is equipped with modern, high quality equipment that performs approx. 420 000 examinations per year. The tests are carried out in the laboratories of hematology, serology, immunology, coagulology, arterial blood gas, immunochemistry, clinical biochemistry and general chemistry. Laboratory staff is actively involved in research and academic work.

In the prospect, if necessary, it is expected to broaden the spectrum of laboratory services. The laboratory conducts tests for patients of individual departments, of the Central Admission Hall, the Hospital’s Outpatient Clinic, Rheumatology Clinics at ul. Batorego and al. Focha, and for patients covered by the drug prescription programs. The unit also performs paid medical tests for institutions and workplaces with which the hospital has entered into appropriate agreements, as well as for individuals. In case of blood tests the patient is required to perform the test on an empty stomach. If the patient is taking medications, she/he should inquire about the proceedings before the test, in connection with the possibility of falsification of results.
