The New Hannah M. Women's Lab Coat

Licensed clinicians are held to the highest standards of aptitude and professionalism and their appearance should reflect this.

Medelita was the first company to introduce a slim-fit collection to its offering of professional lab coats for physicians and medical professionals. The popularity of the initial designs was overwhelming, and in response to demand, the company has launched a new, shorter design for women seeking a slim-fitting alternative to the 34” long Ellody lab coat.

The company’s new women’s slim fit lab coat is named after Dr. Hannah Myrick who received her medical degree from Johns Hopkins University in 1900, helping to blaze the trail for women to enter the field of medicine. Myrick was also credited for developing some of the first X-ray film used at New England Hospital for Women and Children, where she spent ten years as superintendent.

The Hannah M. women’s slim fit lab coat represents the most modern presentation of style and taste for physicians whose appearance is an outward display of aptitude, credibility, and trustworthiness. The slim fit lab coat features an elegant, vintage stand collar that tapers toward a fashionable neckline, with princess seams for an extremely flattering and trim silhouette. The coats are iPad-compatible and are sewn with performance fabrics to ensure that stains roll right off the coat. Medelita founder and licensed physician assistant, Lara Francisco, PA-C explained, "My female colleagues are simply not satisfied with a unisex lab coat that looks no different than a butcher’s coat. No offense to the butcher – and I think any butcher would agree – licensed clinicians are held to the highest standards of aptitude and professionalism and their appearance should reflect this.” The Hannah M. will be available for purchase with or without personalized embroidery online at starting on January 20th, 2014.
