— AdventHealth Tampa is leading the way as the first hospital in the Florida to go live with the innovative cobas® 8100 Roche automated system. AdventHealth Tampa performs more than five million lab tests per year and with the innovative cobas® 8100 system, the laboratory team provides an industry leading turnaround time of less than 30 minutes for a lab test. The fully automated system allows hospital staff to cut down on the time it takes for doctors and patients to receive diagnostic and blood work results.
Leaders cut the ribbon on the fully automated lab on Tuesday, April 16.
“AdventHealth Tampa is on the forefront of leading-edge innovation and technology,” said Brian Adams, President and CEO of AdventHealth Tampa. “This lab expansion allows us to continue to set the standard in our community to provide exceptional service to every patient, every time.”
In addition to providing convenient diagnosis for doctors and patients, the automated system by Roche also allows staff to simplify and streamline lab operations and prioritize emergency lab tests, if needed. Roche is one of the largest biotech companies in the world, creating innovative medicines and diagnostic tests that help millions of patients globally.
AdventHealth, formerly Florida Hospital, is committed to providing the community with our unique brand of compassionate whole-person care.
