Forest City Lab to Re-open

(Honesdale, Pa, April 22, 2021)…Wayne Memorial Hospital plans to re-open its Laboratory Outpatient Services office in Forest City, Susquehanna County, on May 17th.  Last fall, a sharp hike in COVID-19 cases forced the hospital to re-allocate staff primarily to meet increased demand for COVID testing. The Forest City site, which offers blood draw services, is located inside the Forest City Family Health Center at 100 Dundaff Street.  The hours will be Monday to Friday, 6:30am – 2:00pm, and the phone number is 570-785-6622.  Earlier this month, Wayne Memorial re-opened its Laboratory Services office in Tafton. A third lab site, in Waymart, remains closed but Laboratory Services Manager John Romano anticipates opening that office on or near June 1st.  The hospital also offers lab services at the hospital in Honesdale, at the Route 6 Mall in Honesdale, in Carbondale,  and at the Pike Medical Center in Lords Valley.
