Ribbon Cutting at New Braunfels ER
May 16, 2018

This week is Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, so we here at New Braunfels ER wanted to show our appreciation for some of the dedicated, highly-skilled medical laboratory professionals who work in our facility. Medical laboratory professionals are the technicians who specialize in analyzing laboratory testing data. They must be familiar with clinical chemistry, hematology, immunology, immunohematology, microbiology, and molecular biology to find out what is ailing our patients and discover the best form of treatment.

In many ways, they’re medical detectives, cracking new diagnostic cases every day.

At New Braunfels ER, we have Rene Martinez, our Medical Laboratory Scientist, who works with our on-site laboratory and imaging every day to help diagnose and treat our patients.


As a Med Lab Professional, what is your special role in this facility’s daily patient care?

“My role is the overview and compliance of all the laboratory testing. I am responsible for making sure that all testing procedures are safe and accurate for our patients.”


What is your favorite part of your day?

“My favorite part of this role is the teaching portion. I really enjoy explaining why we do what we do and answering the technical questions of the science behind the tests. Curious patients are always my favorites!”


What got you interested in the medical field?

“I have been interested in the medical field since I was a child. I have always wanted to help people and the science of what goes on in the human body still impresses me to this day. It was only natural for me to gravitate towards medical laboratory work.”


What is your favorite part of working at your facility?

“My favorite part of working at NB ER is the proximity of working with the nurses and radiology technicians. This facility has such a family feel where it really feels like we are all working together for every patient.”


How has working in medicine changed your life?

“I found a calling in which I can help people. There is such a great feeling of accomplishment from being able to do my part in the treatment and recovery of every patient.”


New Braunfels ER wouldn’t be the same without our board-certified medical laboratory professionals. This week, join us in celebrating these medical detectives and all that they do to diagnose and treat patients.
