New Laboratory Manager at MCH
September 20, 2013

Julie Confer is the new Laboratory Manager at Madison County Hospital (MCH).


Julie brings many years of education and laboratory experience to MCH.  She received her Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology from Ball State University and Master of Business Administration with a health care specialty from Indiana Wesleyan University.  Before coming to MCH, she worked at Indiana University Health Blackford Hospital in Hartford City where she led the laboratory from being Joint Commission accredited to being accredited by the College of American Pathologists.


She is also certified as a Medical Technologist and Diplomate in Laboratory Management through the American Society for Clinical Pathology.


"I have always had a love for science and it was natural for me to choose the laboratory as my specialty," said Julie.  "My mother is a retired nurse and I grew up around the medical field.  I received my first microscope for Christmas when I was in the second grade."


As the Laboratory Manager, Julie's many responsibilities include assisting the Laboratory Medical Director with personnel and technical oversight of the Clinical Laboratory.  She will manage the laboratory as part of the recent collaboration with Mount Carmel Health System (MCHS).


In August, MCH and MCHS partnered together to expand access to high quality laboratory services for patients in Madison County and the surrounding communities.  The goal of this partnership is to provide laboratory services that exceed industry standards and focus on quality, turnaround time and customer satisfaction.


Julie and her husband Terry have welcomed the move to Central Ohio since it has allowed them to be closer to their daughters and sons-in-law as well as their four grandchildren.  As a family, they enjoy hiking, golfing and participating in 5K races.


Madison County Hospital and Mount Carmel are part of the Health Alliance, which also includes The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
