Most patients that come to the hospital have laboratory tests performed either as an inpatient or outpatient. We offer a convenient outpatient area located at Main Entrance A, where trained phlebotomist are on hand to collect quality specimens for the most accurate results. Certified technologists perform these tests. The laboratory performs testing in the areas of anatomic pathology, clinical chemistry, immunology, coagulation, hemtology, urinalysis, microbiology, and blood banking. Some patients may need blood or blood components. All blood and blood components are procured from volunteer donors, as mandated by federal regulations. All blood and blood components are fully tested for diseases.
