Lyra Garrido, CLS, Laboratory Manager
Conveniently located within Catalina Island Medical Center, the laboratory department serves patients of all ages in the Emergency Department, Medical Group Office, Inpatient and Outpatient areas. If you have a doctor over town, we do accept laboratory orders from doctors who are not on the island. Timely and accurate results will be sent to the referring doctor.
The department is staffed 24/7 by a Clinical Lab Scientist (CLS) professional who collects, processes and analyzes the biological specimens. We process 80% of laboratory specimens in-house, which results in faster turn-around. When questions arise about the reason for tests, possible cost of services or the alternatives to any particular laboratory analysis, CIMC recommends patients phone their primary care physician.
