Spectrum Health Zeeland Community Hospital Unveils Renovated Outpatient Lab

September 13, 2022

ZEELAND, Mich., Sept. 13, 2022 – Spectrum Health Zeeland Community Hospital’s outpatient lab renovation project is complete and open to patients. The reimagined lab offers visitors a more comfortable space, improved operational flow and quicker turnaround times. Construction on the project began in May 2022.

“Our lab assistants are deeply dedicated to delivering exceptional patient experiences and it was important for our facility to match the high quality of our phenomenal team,” said Joe Klesney, chief operating officer, Zeeland Community Hospital. “This renovation affords us more space to meet the needs of our growing number of patients.”

The new space spans across 1,000 square feet and includes five blood draw rooms and two private restrooms. Added security measures include call buttons in blood draw rooms for nursing and security assistance and cameras in hallways to monitor visitor traffic. New TV monitors, artwork from local artists and a dedicated entrance and exit with extra wide doors top off the list of enhancements.

Before the renovation, the outpatient lab hosted an average of 100 patient visits per day. Annually, it served approximately 30,000 patients.

For early morning and late evening convenience, the outpatient lab’s hours of operation are 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to noon on Saturday and closed on Sunday. Appointments are not required, but patients are required to register in the main lobby prior to blood draws or dropping off samples.
