RRMC opens new blood draw on Allen Street in Rutland

1 min read

RUTLAND — Rutland Regional Medical Center will now provide laboratory services at the former Affiliated Lab Services location at 65 Allen Street in Rutland.

Northern Light Laboratory, the parent company of Affiliated, which is based in Maine, ceased providing lab services in Vermont on May 1, 2020.

“As soon as Affiliated alerted us about their plan to pull their operations out of Vermont back in February, we began to do the work to transition the space to a Rutland Regional Lab Draw station,” said Jonathan Reynolds, Vice President of Clinical Services at Rutland Regional Medical Center. “We have hired the majority of the Affiliated staff, so the same familiar faces will be in the lab, and we’ve acclimated Rutland Regional lab techs to space as well.”

The 65 Allen Street location complements the existing laboratory services managed by Rutland Regional at 60 Allen Street as well as at the Community Health locations in Rutland, Brandon, and Castleton.

The new lab station at 65 Allen Street will be open from 5:30 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday.

The location is also easily accessible with ample parking and may be a more convenient option for patients than coming into the hospital lab at 160 Allen Street.
