Wisconsin Diagnostic Laboratories (WDL) has partnered with MedSpeed for our pickup and delivery needs. MedSpeed couriers utilize a barcode system to track specimens. These labels will be provided by MedSpeed and will need to be affixed to the outer transport bag and scanned prior to leaving your facility.
MedSpeed scheduled service includes stops that visit your location at a fixed time(s) and day(s) of the week. When you become a WDL client, we will work with you to establish your schedule.
To request a change to your schedule, please call the MedSpeed control center at (866) 790-3030.
Long-term Care Facilities: For all of your service needs, please call WDL Long Term Care Client Services at (414) 805-7588.
