The Campbell Clinic South location of Alberta Precision Laboratories, at 430 Mayor Magrath Dr. S. in Lethbridge, has been temporarily closed due to short-term staffing shortages.
As this location is drop-in only, no appointments have been cancelled and all patients will be accommodated at other locations, Alberta Health Services said in a news release.
All patients requiring lab services can still access lab collection services at other locations. Appointments are encouraged for the Lethbridge Community Lab, and can be booked online at http://www.APLappointments.ca or by calling 1-833-572-0577.
Current Patient Service Centre locations and hours in Lethbridge include:
– Lethbridge Community Lab, Chinook Regional Hospital – Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Appointments (preferred) and walk-in service;
– Bigelow Fowler Clinic South – Monday to Friday, 8:15 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (walk-in service only);
– Bigelow Fowler Clinic West – Monday to Friday, 8:15 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (walk-in service only); and
– Family Medical Centre – Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:15 p.m. (walk-in service only).
AHS is continuing to work to ensure it has the staffing support needed to continue to offer services safely. Every effort is continuing to find alternate staff solutions to cover shifts. However, when that is not possible, temporary short-term closures are required.
