Cancer Care Ontario has recognized Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) for being a top performer in the province for turnaround time in reporting related to post-surgical pathology investigations for the 2018-19 fiscal year.

Between April 2018 and March 2019, MAHC’s laboratory exceeded the provincial target of completing post-surgical reports within 14 days, and achieved the lowest turnaround times in the province, which means the results of cancer-related biopsies are getting to patients sooner.

The pathology department of the laboratory is based at the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital Site and is responsible for processing and examining tissue specimens generated from surgeries performed at MAHC
