Parkview Health is joining hospitals and health systems across the state as part of the Indiana Department of Health’s lab testing network. In partnership with the state, Parkview has obtained lab equipment that will reduce the turnaround time for COVID-19 diagnostic tests in the region.

A new Roche cobas® machine in the lab at Parkview Regional Medical Center will allow the health system to process a high volume of COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, with most results available in less than 24 hours.
