Overview

Nexus Diagnostic Laboratories, a collaboration between Conway Regional Health System and Reach Diagnostic Partners, offers Central Arkansas physicians competitively-priced esoteric and routine laboratory testing with same-day turnaround service on test results.   Nexus provides client physicians a comprehensive array of clinical diagnostic testing including chemistry, hematology, cytology and coagulation.  Nexus’ assay menu also includes some specialty testing not performed by other national laboratories such as gastrointestinal distress and fatigue profiling. 

During the course of the day, Nexus couriers pick up patient specimens from physician clinics, nursing homes, and other health care providers in Cleburne, Conway, Faulkner, Pope, Van Buren, and White counties.  The specimens are then accessioned, processed and delivered to Conway Regional’s laboratory for testing.   Advanced information technology solutions are used to fully automate the ordering and result delivery processes enabling client physicians to select tests and receive same-day results electronically delivered to their EMR for diagnosis verification.

The rapid result turnaround times delivered through Nexus, as well as the advanced physician connectivity, reliable logistics and exceptional customer support, have significantly improved the level of testing services available to physicians in Central Arkansas.  Moreover, this alliance between Conway Regional and Reach keeps jobs, financial resources, and healthcare decision-making local by eliminating the need to ship patient specimens to out-of-state laboratories for testing.
