About Valley Medical Laboratory

Valley Medical Laboratory was founded in 2016 to support the patients and services of Valley Medical and Wellness. This operation has expanded in recent years to offer toxicology testing and other services to treatment centers across the state of Minnesota. Our CLIA-accredited lab is at the forefront of toxicology testing, offering tests for new substances as they are introduced into the general population.

During the COVID-19 crisis, Valley Medical Laboratory was one of the largest testing sites for the coronavirus, conducting thousands of tests each week. Valley Medical Laboratory was also one of the first labs in the state of Minnesota to offer testing for monkeypox.

Valley Medical Laboratory remains committed to assisting treatment centers across Minnesota with their toxicology testing needs. Look for Valley Medical to continue to introduce new tests and services to better serve the needs of its partners and their clients.
