Kindly note that CMH has a no scent policy.  Kindly refrain from using or wearing perfumes, scented deodorants and scented products before coming to hospital.

No. Patient Laboratory Services only processes internal requisitions made by CMH doctors, clinicians and staff to ensure fast turnaround times. All outside requisitions, like the ones issued by family physicians and nurse practitioners, must be done in a community-based laboratory (e.g., Life Labs, Dynacare. , etc.).

Many of the tests are scheduled on or close to the day of your treatment, to ensure accuracy. Others may be specialized that require special equipment or a specific set of skills. For these reasons, registered CMH patients must go the Patient Laboratory Services for their tests. If you have any concerns, please speak with your care team.
