Organizational Summary

History and Experience

NICL Laboratories, as it exists today, provides the ultimate commitment to its clients in responsive laboratory technology, staffing, quality and service. NICL has provided laboratory services to various hospitals and surgicenters, hundreds of nursing homes, clinics and physician offices, almost continuously during the last 17 years under the present directors and management. Always, NICL was challenged to accept an uncommon breadth of responsibilities. During these years, NICL performed with pride and commitment, and a willing spirit of enthusiastic investment. We consistently demonstrated exceptional dedication and commitment to the continuously escalating demands for quality and service that have characterized the changes in laboratory expectations. Our development personnel always sought to purchase, install and execute the most current service features, state-of-the-art equipment, rapid on-site testing and the best technical and management staffing in a cost-effective manner.

Innovative Leadership

Delivering on its promise to undertake a serious development and investment role for its clients, NICL introduced the LIS concept to its clients many years before most laboratories and hospitals in the wider competing area had even considered LIS for their largely manual laboratory environments. NICL was CLIA licensed before most local laboratories knew about federal licensing, and it achieved accreditation by both JCAHO and CAP. We feel uniquely vested and qualified in continuing in our primary mission and livelihood - that of providing cost effective service to our clients that is flexible and capable of adjusting to the new market demands and future standards that are emerging.

Our organization offers a balanced complement of qualifications, expertise, dedication to quality, service, testing capabilities development, and flexibility.
