Through its worldwide network of more than 4,000 clients, Mayo Medical Laboratories enables hospitals, medical centers and healthcare organizations around the world to send tests to the laboratories of Mayo Clinic, which are some of the most sophisticated in the world. Through this arrangement, Hallmark Health will offer its communities immediate, collaborative access to complex tests performed by Mayo Clinic.
Hallmark Health’s access to Mayo Clinic’s extensive test menu will enhance the local healthcare organization’s ability to provide the highest quality laboratory testing for communities north of Boston.
Most laboratory testing will continue to be done by Hallmark Health with only the most specialized tests being sent to Mayo Clinic.
Those specimens taken at any Hallmark Health facility that need to be sent out will be transported via air to Mayo Clinic, with test results often available the following day through a computer interface. Additionally, Mayo Clinic physicians and scientists in every specialty laboratory will be available for consultation regarding test selection, utilization and methodologies as well as result interpretation.
