SIDNEY — The Laboratory at The Hospital, under the directorship of Dr. P.T. Cruz, hospital pathologist, has been granted New York State approval in the fields of pathology, bacteriology and parasitology.
Mr. Varieur, supervisor of the clinical laboratory at The Hospital, explained that this means that doctors within the county may now send their work in these fields to this laboratory rather than to the State Laboratories in Albany. He also indicated that state approval in the two remaining fields of serology and transfusion service should soon be forthcoming.
This is the first and only laboratory in Delaware County to meet the state requirements and gain state approval.
