State Public Health Laboratory Relocates

After over 40 years in downtown Raleigh, the NC State Laboratory of Public Health will be re-locating to a new facility in Raleigh near the NC State Fairgrounds and Interstate 40.  The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, which is currently housed in Chapel Hill, will also be moving to the new location with the Laboratory of Public Health. The new physical address for both organizations is: 4312 District Drive Raleigh NC 27607. Directions to the new facility may be found at:

While the physical address is changing, the PO Box remains the same (PO Box 28047  Raleigh NC 27601); the courier address does not change (MSC 1918) and all staff e-mail addresses and phone numbers remain the same.  There will be no change in how samples are submitted to the State Laboratory; continue to submit them as you do now.  Staff may be contacted with the same e-mail address and phone numbers that you currently use. The anticipated start date for the move is December 17, 2012 and should be completed by January 18, 2013.  The move is being coordinated to minimize downtime for testing.  However, if during the move, you experience more than a weeks’ delay in the normal and customary Turn Around Time, please let us know. If you have questions about the move, please contact Vickie Whitaker at [email protected] or by phone at 919-807-8949. Vickie is a former State Laboratory employee; she is working part-time to coordinate communication issues about the move.
