Our high complexity Laboratory Department strives to provide quick, efficient, friendly and quality service to all patients. Our expertise is rooted in our dedication to provide our physicians with accurate and timely lab results. While the Laboratory handles blood draws for all hospital inpatients, about 75 percent of the department’s workload comes from residents walking through the door with test orders from their doctor, home health professionals and ER Department.
Laboratory personnel handle 95 percent of all the testing, with the other five percent sent out to a reference lab. The Laboratory offers comprehensive testing in Chemistry, Hematology, Urinalysis, Coagulation, Microbiology and Transfusion Medicine, as well as other specialized high complexity testing.
Special procedures, such as therapeutic phlebotomy can be performed at the Lab.
Our Laboratory is staffed 24-hours a day. However, the Laboratory is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., for those with test orders from their doctor or home health professional.
