Completion of the 37-bed Nipigon District Memorial Hospital in 1992 brought health care under one roof in Nipigon. Extended care, chronic care, acute care, and respite care beds are available for the 5,500 people served by the hospital's catchment area.

The facility, equipment and fully qualified staff can handle a variety of emergency, medical, pediatric, coronary, obstetric and chronic care problems either directly or through transfer from or to other health care facilities.

The Nipigon District Memorial Hospital aims to provide quality health care services to the residents it serves, and to promote health education and improved community health through the integration and coordination of community health programs such as meals-on-wheels, Handi-Transit, Lifeline, Telephone Assurance, Senior Day Care and Respite Care.

The Community's Medical Clinic, located on the same site as the Hospital, has five (5) Family Medicine Physicians and one (1) Nurse Practitioner.

The laboratory stresses high standards in its provision of efficient and accurate diagnostic information. This data is provided to the physicians to aid in diagnosing and monitoring a patient's condition and to facilitate the highest quality of health care as possible to the public.

Technologists provide services in routine clinical chemistry (including urinalysis), routine hematology (including coagulation testing), immunohematology and microbiology, specimen collection for transport to a reference laboratory, and ECG testing for in-patients and out-patients.

The laboratory maintains an effective Quality Control program and participates in the lab proficiency testing program provided by Quality Management Program - Laboratory Services (QMP-LS).

Most routine and emergency testing is done on site. Tests not done on site are referred to MDS Laboratories, Thunder Bay Regional Hospital lab, Provincial Public Health lab, and others.

The department also provides ECGs and Houlter monitors.


Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.

The lab is also on call after hours and weekends.
