The Lab Draw Center at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital will open at a new (temporary) location in the hospital on Monday, April 11. Lab patients should now park and enter at the main entrance.

Patients requiring handicapped parking (only) should park on the north (back) side of the Hospital near the Outpatient Services Entrance. The new Lab Draw Center will be located in the former Friends for the Day Program area, adjacent to the Outpatient Services Entrance.

To accommodate an increased need for care, Newark-Wayne Community Hospital is planning to break ground for a $13 million dollar Major Modernization Project including a new Emergency Department later this spring pending final NYS approval. The move of the Lab Draw Center is a necessary “enabling project” to accommodate the new layout of the first floor of the hospital.

The project will also include a new Endoscopy Suite and creation of a Patient Access Center to house Central Registration, Pre-Admission Testing, the permanent Lab Draw Center and a patient reception area. EKG/EEG is also moving to a new space within Radiology.

Lab patients should call 332-2211 with any questions.
