Sharon Grace, a 1992 Kansas Newman College graduate, was the focus of an article in the Nov. 11, 2008 Wichita Eagle.The article highlighted Grace, a registered nurse, and the business she recently started called Lab Cab, a mobile medical laboratory service. Grace travels to clients’ homes or offices to obtain blood or other specimen samples as ordered by physicians, then transports the samples to the health care provider for laboratory analysis. Grace, who had worked in the home health care field for many years, said she perceived the need and opportunity for the business after seeing many people who were homebound or otherwise unable to visit a doctor’s office or clinic to get laboratory samples taken.
Grace said she is initially targeting homebound, pre- and post-operative patients and other individuals for her business, but hopes to expand to corporate wellness programs by transporting samples from businesses for health checks and drug screenings.
