The Pondera Medical Center’s  (PMC) Laboratory Department received the Chief Executive Officer’s (CEO) Department of the Year Award at the PMC Christmas party in December. The CEO Department of the Year Award is presented to the department which has best exemplified the mission, vision, and values of PMC and who, through consistent actions, shows PMC provides the “Best of Care, Close to Home.” 

Departments are nominated by others within the facility. Some of the comments from the lab’s nomination read: “The lab’s commitment to PMC is unwavering. They provide excellent service to all who pass through. Efforts at the health fair and through the years have made the event a tradition for the community. Barb’s (Meuli) smiling face and her candor with patients inspires trust and confidence.”

The staff of the lab demonstrates it CARES through:


•Years of dedicated service- giving up a lot of their personal lives to serve this community and PMC.


•When called in, Lab responds in snow, -30 degree temps, ice, they battle mother nature and perform their service 24/7


•To every patient and fellow PMC employee, lab is respectful.


•Barb Meuli and the entire team are a wealth of knowledge


•Consistent quality service and covering the department always.
