Vision Statement

Alverno Laboratories leads and grows through innovative partnerships, cutting edge technology, informatics, and creative people.


Our History

Alverno Laboratories was established in 1999 as Alverno Clinical Laboratories, Inc. as an integrated laboratory network of six hospitals. In 2005, the joint venture between Franciscan Alliance and Provena Health established us as one of the first integrated networks serving two distinct healthcare systems with 18 hospitals, creating Alverno Clinical Laboratories, LLC. In 2008, Resurrection Healthcare joined the network to expand our coverage to 26 hospital laboratories, becoming Professional Clinical Laboratories, LLC. In 2011, Provena Health and Resurrection Healthcare joined to create Presence Health. In 2018 AMITA Health acquired Presence Health and so the AMITA Health hospital laboratories joined the Alverno network in August of 2019. Today we own and serve 34 hospital laboratories throughout the Franciscan Alliance and AMITA Health systems.

Today we are known as Alverno Laboratories, returning to our Alverno faith-based heritage. After two decades we continue to adapt, grow, and achieve excellence. Our new logo emphasizes the diverse and expert staff, without which we would not be the success we are today.


Innovation with a Vision

Today, Alverno Laboratories believes in “innovation with a vision.” As the first U.S. Beckman Coulter Microbiology Innovation Center, we are the leaders in microbiology innovation, improving blood culture turnaround times. We have pioneered sophisticated tools and automated technology, such as CellaVision®, which simplify testing procedures. This allows us to remain community-focused, providing patients with results sooner and saving lives in the process. We measure our success not by the number of tests we perform, but how many patient lives we touch.


Alverno is an award-winning laboratory. In 2014 we received the Chanute Prize for Team Innovation. We were also named Laboratory of the Year by ADVANCE Healthcare Network’s For the Laboratory magazine in 2016.
