Who We Are

We are one of the Most Admired Companies in Arizona and have received that honor for the past six years, most recently in 2015. We also happen to be the nation's largest integrated laboratory system with approximately 3,200 employees serving more than 25,000 patients every day throughout Arizona.

Did you know that laboratory results impact 75% of the medical diagnostic process? All the data entry our Specimen Processing Technicians perform plays a critical role in helping physicians provide accurate diagnosis and medical treatment.

So, what does a Specimen Processing Technician do?

  • Accurately enters patient information and lab test information into the company's lab system as lab specimens arrive at our laboratory.

  • Verifies accuracy of entered information.

  • Delivers specimens to the technical floor in a timely manner.

  • Complies with all safety rules, and follows defined safety practices.

  • May need to pour specimens (blood, urine, etc.) into containers for testing purposes.

Who you are:

  • Detail oriented and comfortable working in a fast paced environment.

  • Comfortable sitting and typing during your entire shift. At times you may help sort out specimens which will require standing for long periods of time.

  • Comfortable with set structure and following procedures

  • A team player who is aware that your work is critical in helping medical providers and hospitals provide excellent patient care.

Who you are not:

  • Someone who is grossed out by blood, urine, body parts, or working with anything the human body can produce.

  • Overwhelmed by a fast-paced environment.

  • Uncomfortable typing information on keyboard for long periods of time. Data entry work is not your thing.

  • Unfamiliar navigating through different screens on the computer.

  • Uncomfortable with set schedules and showing up to work on time.

Must Haves:

  • High school diploma or GED.

  • Comfortable seeing all types of bodily fluids in containers.

  • Motivated, results-driven individual.

  • Excellent work ethic and commitment to patient care.

Ideally, you also have (but OK if not):

Experience working in a laboratory setting. Good typing skills.
