Alberta’s non-urgent lab services will be provided by a private Canadian company starting on December 5, 2022. DynaLIFE was selected after the Government of Alberta evaluated a number of proposals and an agreement was finalized between Dynalife and Alberta Precision Labs (APL) on June 1, 2022.
“DynaLIFE already provides community lab services in Edmonton, central Alberta and a number of northern Alberta communities and they’ve done so for more than 25 years. At the same time, APL will continue to provide lab services to small rural remote communities and acute care hospitals,” said Alberta’s Health Minister, Jason Copping.
The Health Minister says the change will create efficiencies in cost savings between $18 and $36 million dollars a year.
DynaLIFE Medical Labs will be operating patient service centers in several urban centres including in Red Deer.
