Clinical Laboratory Expansion & Renovation

The clinical laboratory at the Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital was a five-phase project spanning five years. As the phases were completed, each lab function moved into the completed area leaving the empty area to be fit-out for the next phase of the project.

  • The first phase consisted of a 7,515 SF one-story overbuild which houses the blood laboratory.
  • The second phase renovated 9,500 SF of the existing blood lab into a pathology, cytology and histology laboratory.
  • The third phase renovated the core lab bringing in the latest technology available at the time, featuring a fully automated Beckman line.
  • The fourth phase updated the microbiology lab and morgue.
  • The final phase added support and administrative services. The entire project includes new air handlers and exhaust units.
