The province is consolidating Edmonton’s diagnostic labs into a new publicly governed facility that will address the region’s growing need for lab services.

Early next year, the province will also begin consolidating lab services into a public corporation under Alberta Health Services (AHS). There will be no job losses as a result of this change.

When fully implemented in 2022, the public model will leverage existing AHS infrastructure, accounting systems and corporate services while optimizing innovation in laboratory diagnostics to accommodate growing demands. A new governance board will oversee all lab services in the province.
