The faculty at Carondelet St. Marys Histology Department together created a walkthrough of our facilities to educate the people around us. Our walkthrough occurred on March 10, 2011. We created poster boards as a form of advertisement, we took photos displaying our Pathology / Histology Team in action, and we decorated our facility with various histology photos and literature, and provided refreshments to those in attendance
Many People took Lab Tour at Carondelet St. Marys Hospital! There were many in attendance and the walkthrough went well. We had outside visitors interested in histology, Senior Leadership within our hospital, fellow lab workers that wanted to know what we did, and people from various departments throughout our hospital. We also had representatives from Ventana Medical Systems and Clarient Diagnostics that provided support and information to our staff and community. NSH HPD Celebration Contest
