The history of Mount Alvernia Hospital began in 1949 with the arrival of Sister Mary Angela McBrien, Sister Mary Camillus Walsh and Sister Mary Baptista Hennessy. Back then, public hospitals were overcrowded and understaffed. The nuns from the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM) felt that more could be done to bridge the gap.
This section analyses the biochemical components in whole blood, serum, plasma, urine, and other body fluids (e.g. Cerebrospinal fluid, pleural fluid, ascitic fluid, gastric fluid etc.) for the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of diseases as well as patient management. A range of specialized tests such as cardiac markers and tumour markers are also available.
