Medical Lab Week is a time to recognize the employees who are busy everyday reading and analyzing medical lab tests. There are more than 265-thousand of these professionals nationwide.

These employees at Memorial Health Systems of East Texas say they enjoy their jobs.

Larry Hinsley, the lab manager, said, "The interesting thing about lab work is even though we don't see the patient, many times in every situation we are able to see the progress in that patient by the blood tests that are run. It's kind of exciting to see us winning some when they get to feeling better and we get to send them home."

The memorial lab has recently achieved the highest accredition possible for a lab.
