Laboratory Services

Laboratory services are provided 24 hours a day by our licensed staff, averaging over 50,000 procedures a year.  The Lab is very patient-friendly with easy access to both the main entrance and emergency rooms.  Just inside the door is a special collection area for drawing blood and also a restroom for urine collections ,including all Department of Transportation required collections.  Anyone who has orders to have any type of laboratory test performed can have that test at out Lab, even if it was ordered by a physician  from out of town. This outreach performed by the hospital’s laboratory enables residents to have their testing done locally, saving them from traveling sometimes many miles away to a large city to their specialty clinic or hospital just for a blood test.  Our staff also travel to all area nursing homes for specimen collection.
