New Laboratory Automation System Comes to Westmed
Westmed Medical Group, a Purchase-based multi-specialty medical group, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday to officially open its new, fully automated clinical laboratory at 2700 Westchester Avenue in Purchase, NY.
“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.

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.”
He continued, “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.”
