What is Alberta Public Laboratories?
Alberta Public Laboratories (APL) is the new, wholly-owned subsidiary of Alberta Health Services (AHS) and is ready to deliver high-quality, responsive diagnostic lab services to Albertans as a part of the provincial healthcare system.
APL is the consolidation of lab services into one organization previously provided by AHS, Calgary Lab Services (CLS), Covenant Health, and Lamont Health Care Centre. Services currently provided by DynaLIFE will be added in 2022.
Why was APL created?
Consolidating laboratory services and staff from across the province will ensure healthcare providers across Alberta are provided with faster access to lab results – leading to better patient outcomes and an enhanced patient experience.
Ultimately, this will help improve the efficiency of Alberta’s lab system and the response times for results to Albertans.
