Port Lincoln is known for being an incredible South Australian holiday destination but whilst tourists come and go, those who call it home need consistency and a pathology provider that cares.
SA Pathology has been serving the Port Lincoln community since 1968 from our local laboratory. The lab currently performs clinical chemistry, haematology, transfusion, bacteriology, point of care testing and fertility testing.
The majority of the team are locals and the laboratory’s relationship with the community is very positive. Prior to COVID-19 Laboratory Manager Kyle Bonello says that they, “would have volunteer couriers performing some local runs on their behalf.
It is always a good indicator when the community put their hand up to help out.”
Passion and their community spirit drive the team within the laboratory.
“It’s always great to know that we’re directly impacting positive patient outcomes. Working within a regional laboratory, you get to interact with the patients and develop a rapport that provides them with confidence that they’re in good hands.”
The Laboratory also gives back to the community through assisting University students that may be seeking a position within a laboratory or even within nursing.
Kyle says that the team is looking forward to hosting the Regional Scientific meeting in 2023, putting faces to names and interacting with staff from across the state.
Thank you for your incredible work, Kyle and the team!
