Public Notice: Stanton Lab Hours Extending

Effective October 19th, 2020, the Stanton Laboratory will be extending its hours of operations to 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Monday to Friday. These extended hours are expected to decrease patient wait times at the Stanton Laboratory. Regular Stanton Lab hours are 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM Monday to Friday.

Patients are encouraged to come to the laboratory during the extended hours, as they will experience shorter wait times and be better able to maintain physical distancing in the hospital waiting areas.

Please be aware that public masking is now required in NWT Health and Social Services facilities and office. Patients are encouraged to bring their own mask to reduce waste; however, if an individual does not have their own mask, our staff may be able to provide you with a disposable one.

The Yellowknife Primary Care Lab will remain closed, as that location continues to be used as a COVID-19 testing clinic.  If you require lab services, please visit the Stanton Laboratory.
