The Bellingham Business Journal

Northwest Regional Laboratories is changing its name to PeaceHealth Laboratories. As part of PeaceHealth’s St. Joseph Hospital, the laboratories have served the region for more than 20 years.

“Although our name is changing, the people, services and high standards of care we provide will remain the same,” says Kim Jongeward, director of Bellingham operations for PeaceHealth Laboratories. “We represent laboratories in three states and needed one name that works well in all areas. We are pleased to have our new name reflect our long-term relationship to PeaceHealth and its mission of promoting personal and community health.”

PeaceHealth Laboratories employs 183 people and has 10 locations in Whatcom County. For more information, call (360) 788-7755 or visit
