Synchrony Health Services announced the launch of its latest division, Synchrony Lab, which will provide testing and diagnostics specifically for residents of long-term care communities.

This division will provide routine and stat labs including chemistry, hematology, coagulation, urinalysis, microbiology, and molecular testing within the long-term care setting. Housed in Louisville, Kentucky, Lab services will be offered six days a week and will offer quicker turnaround time, with most routine results coming back in 12-18 hours.

“Today is an exciting day not only for our company, but for the customers we serve,” says Randy Bufford, president and CEO of Synchrony Health Services. “By offering lab services six days a week with swift turnaround times, we are leveraging state-of-the-art technology and logistics to provide actionable and accurate clinical data in a timely fashion to the practitioners we are serving.”

Synchrony Lab aims to offer improved electronic health record integrations for seamless service that allows all orders to be placed and results to be reviewed timely within the same system.

“We have planned and customized our lab to operate with the highest quality – with a focus on providing the best care for the senior housing community. We are so excited to launch our services and to watch how patient care is improved by our laboratory,” says Lori Millner, PhD, Synchrony Lab Director.

By September 2022, Synchrony Lab will serve an estimated 130 long-term health care communities.
