4-7-21 National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week is April 18-24th, and the laboratory team is celebrating. Yes, the pandemic may still be raging, but we’ve survived an extremely difficult year together with the rest of our Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital heroes. Appropriately, this year’s Lab Week theme is “Avengers of the Laboratory – We Believe in Heroes.”


And we do believe in heroes! The Sentara lab team has accomplished a great deal during this past year. From expanded in-house COVID-19 testing performed on multiple platforms right here at Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital to the new molecular laboratory in Norfolk General that was created in only four weeks and can now perform up to a thousand COVID-19 tests a day, Sentara lab professionals have risen to the challenge of fighting our common foe. Join the “Avengers of the Laboratory” in celebrating having survived these difficult times in partnership with our fellow SMJH healthcare heroes -- we salute each and every one of you!
