SCC Soft Computer® Celebrates Medical Laboratory Professionals Week

April 15, 2014

(Clearwater, FL) April 15, 2014 – SCC Soft Computer (SCC) is proud to celebrate Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (MLPW), taking place April 20 – 26, 2014. MLPW is an annual week of recognition for the contribution made to the field of healthcare by dedicated medical laboratory professionals and board-certified pathologists.

Medical laboratory professionals are key members of the healthcare team and play a pivotal role in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. SCC appreciates these efforts and recognizes the critical role they play in diagnosing disease and saving lives – often behind the scenes.

In 2004, SCC developed the brand ‘Lab is Fab!®’ to help increase awareness and promote this line of work. As a token of appreciation and to contribute to the week’s celebration, SCC sends annual Lab Week packages to the laboratories they work with to commend the life-saving work performed by dedicated laboratory staff members. Laboratory professionals may work behind the scenes, but their profession makes up a fundamental aspect of healthcare. SCC plans to continue the tradition of honoring this essential field and the medical laboratory professionals who continue to make a difference in advancing every aspect of modern healthcare and clinical diagnostics.
