Our Laboratory Services

Each of our facilities support a CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment) registered, high complexity clinical laboratory for processing those tests necessary for the detection, diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. 

Our labs are staffed by registered Clinical Laboratory Technologists and highly trained lab assistants.  Illinois Cancer Specialists has met all criteria for laboratory accreditation by COLA, a national healthcare accreditation service.  Accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of proficiency and pass a rigorous on site survey. 

Our emphasis on quality manifests itself in reliable test results, an essential element in assuring excellence in patient care.  In addition, we utilize the highest quality reference laboratories for those tests that may not be supported by our current testing menu. 

Illinois Cancer Specialists operates our own laboratory at most sites, however the Niles lab facility is managed and staffed by Quest Diagnostics.
