Medical Laboratory Professionals Week - April 18-24

April 18-24, 2021 is Medical Laboratory Professionals Week. I would like to commend the Clark Fork Valley Hospital laboratory team and the other 300,000+ medical laboratory professionals working in our nation’s healthcare system.

The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has highlighted the critical work that medical laboratory professionals do every day. The many challenges of navigating SARS-CoV-2 testing, reporting, and changing guidelines (while continuing to perform all other testing in the laboratory) have been formidable. Due to SARS-CoV-2, our laboratory went from the mindset of serving our local community to serving our whole nation’s healthcare system. I am proud of the way our laboratory team has stepped up and met the many challenges encountered during this pandemic.

May I please ask that you recognize and congratulate the hard-working staff in Clark Fork Valley Hospital’s laboratory? Your recognition of our team and the work they do will be greatly appreciated.
