HNL Lab Medicine Announces a New Patient Service Center in Avoca, PA
HNL Lab Medicine, a regional leader in high quality, innovative laboratory medicine services, announces the opening of a Patient Center in Avoca, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

The address for this newest location in HNL Lab Medicine’s network is 650 Main St., Avoca, PA, 18641, conveniently located inside of the Ramos Rheumatology Building. Patients can access this facility Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

“Opening this patient center in Avoca supports our commitment to offering patients in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area HNL Lab Medicine’s premier clinical laboratory testing services,” says Brian Fanning, Director of Marketing at HNL Lab Medicine. “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Dr. Ramos, a respected rheumatologist in the region.” This new Patient Center is open to patients from Ramos Rheumatology as well as the broader community.


At HNL Lab Medicine’s Avoca location — and at all patient centers operated by the lab — no appointments are needed and wait times are typically less than 15 minutes. Patients may check current wait times and check-in online at https://www.hnl.com/Avoca. HNL Lab Medicine prides itself on making every patient experience quick and comfortable and holds its phlebotomists and staff to the highest standards of professionalism and kindness.


HNL Lab Medicine’s commitment to fast service extends to receiving test results as quickly as possible. Most tests are completed within 24 hours after reaching HNL's state-of-the-art reference laboratory in the Lehigh Valley. When patients sign up for MyHNLAccess, a free patient portal, they can easily view their results on their computer, smartphone, or other mobile devices and even receive a text message when results are available.


HNL Lab Medicine also offers self-pay options which may be an economical choice for patients without insurance or for those who participate in high deductible health plans.


HNL Lab Medicine accepts all insurance plans and will directly bill a patient’s primary insurance company. HNL Lab Medicine has a patient-friendly billing policy and offers payment plans and online billing support services.  


Operating for over 20 years, HNL Lab Medicine is a leader in laboratory medicine that works with more than 10 hospital systems and has over 50 regional patient service centers.  Each year, HNL generates more than 60 million clinical and anatomic pathology results for approximately 3 million patients and 12,000 healthcare providers.
