LifeLabs will be closing 15 patient service centres in Ontario.

According to LifeLabs communications manager Stephanie Sayer the company performs 5.5 per cent more tests than it did three years ago.

Sayer says they are making changes to help them find a balance between the growing demands for services in their constrained fiscal environment and maintaining quality service to our patients, healthcare partners and physicians across Ontario.

Sayer says Haliburton and Minden will remain open.
