About DSM

Diagnostic Services Manitoba is Manitoba's public sector diagnostic health care service provider. We serve communities across the province, aiming to provide all Manitobans, no matter where they live, with high quality laboratory tests and rural Manitobans with diagnostic imaging procedures. We're proud to provide the "Results That Matter" upon which doctors make their diagnoses and base their treatment decisions for Manitobans.

DSM's Laboratory Information Manual (LIM) is a reference for all testing done in DSM's laboratory sites within Manitoba. Our Vision, Mission and Values, which guide our daily operations and planning, paint a strong picture of who we are and the organization we continuously strive to be:


To create a patient-first environment that provides quality laboratory and diagnostic imaging services supporting the health care needs of all Manitobans.


We will assume a provincial leadership role in medical laboratory and medical imaging services for the province of Manitoba.


We are committed to patient-centred care and the provision of innovative and collaborative diagnostic services with integrity and accountability.
