Centegra Health System announces the opening of Centegra Clinical Laboratories (CCL). The launch of CCL was planned as part of Centegra Health System’s 10,000 square foot clinical laboratories expansion that started in June 2010 in response to the increased demand for medical laboratory testing.
“Population growth is contributing to a greater need for medical laboratories, and there is a stronger emphasis on preventative medicine, early detection and patient responsibility,” said Rebecca Rockwood, laboratory director at Centegra Health System. “The consistent and rapid growth of new medical technologies such as genetic testing is another reason we added CCL to the full continuum of health care services offered at Centegra.”
Patients in the region will benefit from walk-in laboratory locations at Centegra’s Crystal Lake Medical Arts building, 360 Station Drive in Crystal Lake and at Centegra Health Center-Huntley, 10350 Haligus Road in Huntley. CCL’s high-quality services will align with Centegra Health System’s goal to bring outstanding health care to greater McHenry and Kane counties. CCL will provide a timely courier service, hospital-quality testing, rapid electronic results, competitive pricing and excellent customer service. Patients may benefit from lower out-of-pocket expenses by having lab work performed at these locations.

The reference laboratory is another way we are expanding our services to meet the community’s needs.”
