HNL Lab Medicine has announced the acquisition of NLM Laboratories. The two organizations share a common vision focused on serving healthcare professionals and their patients with comprehensive laboratory testing services, timely diagnostic insight, and convenient access for patients.
“Together, NLM Laboratories and HNL Lab Medicine will expand access to full-service laboratory diagnostics while maintaining convenience and improving service for healthcare professionals and patients in Northern Pennsylvania,” said Matthew Sorrentino, Esquire, President & CEO of HNL Lab Medicine.
Current NLM patients can continue to access lab services from the NLM location at 271 North Cedar Street in Hazleton, and will have the support and strength of extended services offered through HNL including:
  • Access to more than 60 additional patient centers throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey
  • 24/7 comprehensive laboratory testing services
  • Optional “house calls” for patients who desire increased convenience
  • Continued at-home or care facility services for medically homebound patients
 
“HNL Lab Medicine significantly expands the services that NLM Laboratories can provide to the community, which is especially important for our most vulnerable populations, even more crucial as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and upcoming flu season,” said Joseph Shiskowski, Principal, NLM Laboratories. “The union of our organizations affirms our commitment to provide world-class lab services to our patients and community, and we are very excited to have our talented team at NLM join the region’s most trusted full-service lab network.”

NLM Laboratories will retain its current name, signage, and patient center; patients may see new paperwork as systems for ordering, billing, and lab results are integrated with HNL’s enhanced automation system. There are no immediate changes to the service or patient access for physicians currently utilizing NLM services. Together, NLM and HNL will offer:
  • Full-service medical lab testing and related services for physician offices, hospitals, long-term care facilities, employers, and industrial accounts
