In our critical role of helping doctors make the most accurate diagnoses, we at North Shore-LIJ’s Laboratory consider ourselves the backbone of patient care. The fact that our sophisticated operations are NYS, CAP and JCAHO approved is a testament to our level of quality, accuracy and ethical business practices.

Our Core Laboratory was named one of the top three labs in the US by Advance for Medical Laboratory Professionals, in both 2009 and 2011. This fully automated, round-the-clock facility provides centralized and advanced testing services to all of the hospitals and physician practices within our vast network.
