VERNON - It would seem the Interior Health Authority’s downtown Vernon lab has outgrown its current location, especially when it comes to the small parking lot.

The IHA has decided to move the popular Laboratory Blood Collection Site out of the Discovery Plaza just north of the Schubert Centre.

The new location is the brand new Sterling Building at the corner of Highway 97 and 25th Avenue. The exact address is 3210 25th Avenue. It’ll be on the second floor.

The hours of operation will be the same: Monday to Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The old Discovery Plaza lab closes its doors on Oct. 17 so the equipment can be packed up and moved to the new location.

The new lab will be open on Monday, Oct. 21.

If you have any questions or concerns you can call 250-558-1242.
