Your little ones have unique needs when it comes to phlebotomy. At HNL Lab Medicine, their needs come first.
Because of this, we’ve developed a program to prepare phlebotomists for the unique, emotional and physical needs of our pediatric patients so we can better serve this population.
At HNL Lab Medicine, we consider the overall experience for our patients. We have developed a pediatric-centric experience, complete with specialized training for our team, pediatric-specific draw rooms, and educational material tailored to children to provide insight and reduce anxiety surrounding blood work.
While all HNL Lab Medicine patient service centers accept both adult and pediatric patients, we’ve developed pediatric draw rooms at several of our patient service centers to provide an experience tailored to the needs of our younger patients.
