Director, Laboratory Medicine
Joined HSS in 2007
I couldn’t tell you the presidents’ names at the other hospitals I’ve worked at, but here everyone knows Lou Shapiro, and he knows us. This is a place where you feel connected because everyone is working towards the same goal – from the top down.
It’s the same with the patients. Working on IT for the Lab, I don’t meet them face-to-face, but I still feel very involved. I’m always aware the specimens we analyze are from real people. And the systems we’ve worked so hard to install – such as EPIC, for integrating records across the hospital – are there to help provide the best possible care.
Our technologists are integral members of our laboratory team. Handling a wide range of responsibilities, this team does everything from maintaining essential supplies and preparing solutions and reagents to performing quality control and processing specimens. As a technologist at HSS, you’ll help build the foundation our healthcare professionals need to make critical care decisions. Using both manual and automated methods, you’ll perform a range of vital tests that produce accurate clinical and anatomic pathologic lab results, allowing us to operate at a higher level, every day.
As a phlebotomist, energy, expertise and enthusiasm are essential. Because here, it’s not just about collecting quality blood samples – it’s about ensuring our patients’ safety and comfort, too. In this position, you’ll be responsible for maintaining essential supplies, consulting with medical staff and determining and filling requests, all of which contributes to our success as a leading patient care provider.
