Message From the Director to our DUHS Clinical Laboratory Staff

January 1st 2018

To our Clinical Laboratory Team;

I wanted to take a few minutes of your holiday to simply and sincerely say Thank You.

You have accomplished great things in 2017 and you have much to be proud of.  You have moved our laboratories to their new Duke Hospital home and with this, you have created new workflows and SOPs. You have performed more testing this year than in any previous year in almost every work center (particularly in our DRAH and DRH laboratories). You have brought new tests on line, validated new platforms and new instruments, expanded our services to new locations, and of course validated another beaker release.  You have welcomed and trained our new staff, new residents, fellows and visiting students.  

You have done all of these things with the professionalism, dedication, resilience and ingenuity that has come to define our Clinical Laboratories.

I am humbled to be a part of this team and I am inspired every day by what I experience when I walk through the labs.

May we all live our Duke Values in 2018 of caring for our patients their loved ones and each other through excellence, safety, integrity, diversity and teamwork and may 2018 bring you a sense of fulfillment and pride in your work at Duke, happiness in all things and peace.
