10 years of qualified laboratory medicine

The move to the north and the heart of Northern Friesland has given the laboratory necessary reorientation and highly qualified employees.

The constant advances in medical science, the constant change in health policy and the economic framework as well as the increasing demands in the population for quality and service-oriented care requires a continuous development of our corporate strategy and the associated values and goals.

This mission statement is intended to serve as a trend-setting orientation for the company and thus for all employees, executives and management and requires constant concretization and implementation with clearly defined but constantly changing, open goals.

The committed cooperation of all those involved in the development and revitalization of the mission statement creates the prerequisites for it to be accepted and identified and to actually be enlivened in everyday company life.
