The Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center (PSHMC) School of Medical Laboratory Science was established in 1932. Our school is committed to providing highly qualified medical laboratory scientists (MLS) to the healthcare community. Laboratory Medicine is critical to healthcare, impacting the health of every individual. MLS are the diagnostic laboratory professionals performing the analyses that assist physicians in the diagnosis, treatment, monitoring, and prevention of disease. 70% of all medical decisions are based on laboratory test results. Graduates of the PSHMC School of MLS are competent to enter the laboratory profession, are highly recruited, and become leaders in Laboratory Medicine.

Thanks to the generous donations from the Blood Center Foundation of the Inland Northwest, each PSHMC MLS student for the past several years has been awarded a scholarship as they began the school year. Past gifts from the foundation include a chemistry analyzer and two, dual-headed microscopes used in our student laboratory.
Our Spokane, WA Medical Laboratory Science Program and Vitalant have a long standing relationship, and work cooperatively in developing curriculum, sponsoring educational activities and being innovative in change and educational technologies. It's a mission we are proud to share.
Thanks to the Blood Center Foundation for investing in health care education, research and innovation in our community!
