LENOIR — The Broyhill Family Foundation Clinical Lab will be a part of UNC Health Caldwell’s planned $33 million expansion, the hospital announced Friday.


The new lab is much needed and will be used for analyzing clinical specimens to obtain information about the health of a patient to aid in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. The current clinical lab was last renovated nearly 40 years ago.


“The clinical lab is vitally important to the care of our patients and is essential for accurate diagnosis and developing treatment protocols,” said Dr. Sarah Hamler, pathologist at UNC Health Caldwell. “The new Broyhill Family Foundation Clinical Lab will provide our clinical and anatomic pathology teams with an expanded space and new equipment which will enhance quality, efficiency, and safety in the clinical lab and for our patients.”


The new space will be equipped with state-of-the-art clinical analyzing equipment. All heating, cooling, ventilation and electrical requirements will also be renovated to accommodate the new equipment and space needs. The revamped work flow will allow lab personnel to complete their work effectively and efficiently.


“We consider UNC Health Caldwell such a vital part of our community.” said Sheila Triplett Brady, executive director of the Broyhill Family Foundation. “Our Foundation is excited to support the hospital’s upcoming $33 million expansion efforts to address the hospital’s critical needs in the clinical lab.”


The Caldwell Memorial Hospital Foundation will be announcing a capital campaign later this spring that will support the growth at UNC Health Caldwell.
