ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO – October 26, 2022 — TriCore, New Mexico’s non-profit clinical laboratory, is pleased to announce the opening of their new Southern Clinical Laboratory in Las Cruces, New Mexico. This state-of-the-art laboratory performs a comprehensive menu of routine wellness testing, as well as provider-ordered COVID PCR testing, onsite in Las Cruces. Transit time to Albuquerque for these specimens is eliminated, reducing turnaround time and, in some cases, enabling same-day results.

Located in the heart of a major Las Cruces medical district (corner of Telshor & University), the new laboratory includes TriCore’s new Telshor Patient Care Center, a modern, streamlined space with ample parking for patient draws and specimen collection. Patients can conveniently schedule an appointment online or walk-in for lab services.

“The opening of this new laboratory furthers our mission to improve the health of our communities as an active contributor to New Mexico’s medical and bioscience industry. TriCore was founded almost 25 years ago by New Mexico scientists and medical professionals to better serve New Mexico communities with local, high-quality medical laboratory testing. Our new Southern Clinical Laboratory brings the same quality, convenience, and speed to the southern New Mexico region, and we will continue to explore new ways to serve the region through this new facility,” comments TriCore CEO, Robin Divine.

“We are so proud of the Las Cruces area scientists and phlebotomists that make up our Southern Clinical Laboratory team. Beyond providing their expertise, these healthcare professionals’ commitment to their community exemplifies the spirit of TriCore.” comments Eric Carbonneau, TriCore’s Chief Operating Officer.
