VermontBiz The Rutland Regional Medical Center (RRMC) Lab and Blood Draw Station, currently located at 65 Allen Street, will be closed for business on Friday, May 31, to allow for the blood draw station to move a few blocks away to its new location at 4 Commons Street.

The lab and blood draw services will reopen at the new location at 4 Commons Street on Monday, June 3 with the same hours of operation, Monday through Friday, 5:30am-10:30am and 11am-2pm.

“We are always looking for more efficient and effective ways to provide services to our community,” said Saisha Branchaud, Pharm.
