Our Testing Makes the Grade

Medicine has come a long way in recent years, though even the latest breakthroughs don’t change one underlying fact: successful treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis. That makes Raritan Bay Medical Center’s (RBMC) Laboratory Services a vitally important stop along our hospital’s continuum of care. In fact, while it often works behind the scenes, the laboratory plays a critical role by performing more than 800,000 diagnostic tests each year.

Successful treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis.

RBMC’s laboratory offers a broad scope of inpatient and outpatient services, maintaining two state-of-the-art facilities located in Perth Amboy and Old Bridge. Whether conducting a routine blood screening or highly complex procedure, our staff is dedicated to consistently making the grade, which means following the most stringent clinical standards, ensuring absolute precision, and delivering results as quickly as possible.

When you choose RBMC for your laboratory services, rest assured that each specimen is handled with superior care, and each client is treated with professional, personalized service. We recognize that every diagnostic test impacts a medical decision, and behind every result is someone counting on our expertise – which we never forget.

Our exceptional facilities are operated by an equally impressive staff, comprised of experienced medical technologists, phlebotomists and board certified pathologists who are trained in such areas as cytology, phlebotomy, surgical pathology and other subspecialties.
