“We are very pleased to announce the opening of our new laboratory using the Siemens Aptio Automation System,” said Anthony Viceroy, WESTMED Medical Group’s CEO. This next-generation, open-systems technology is one of the first of its kind in the Northeast. With its highly innovative instrumentation, the Aptio streamlines workflow, simplifies testing and delivers consistent, high-quality results.

“At WESTMED, we take pride in working as a team with our healthcare providers, nurses and technologists, to deliver the best patient care possible. Every day, our physicians and clinical staff depend on our lab to perform and analyze critical laboratory tests in a consistent and timely manner, in order to help us understand the complete picture of a patient’s health," said Viceroy. “We are grateful to our partner Siemens for enabling us to integrate this new automation to improve the efficiency and quality of our clinical lab operations that produce essential—often life-saving—diagnostic test results for our patients.”
