Jeannie Reid, a certified phlebotomist, has joined Family Health West.

Reid brings to her latest position seven years of experience drawing blood and enjoys patient contact. “I know that what I do is an important step in not only diagnosing a patient, but keeping up on general health,” Reid said. “I am excited to work at Family Health West and hope to meet many new people at the draw station at Western Valley Family Practice.”

Elizabeth Reese, laboratory director at Family Health West, said she’s excited about the addition of Reid as well as extended laboratory hours at the hospital in Fruita and the ability to offer lab services at the Western Valley Family Practice location in Grand Junction.

 The hospital lab is now staffed from 7 a.m. until midnight weekdays. The draw station is located at the Western Valley Family Practice location at 2237 Redlands Parkway and open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
