Laboratory Services

Our commitment to the community.

Our Lab staff is committed to providing patients access to top-quality clinical lab work six days a week. The highlight of our lab is same day test results because many tests are conducted in house. These results are sent electronically to the medical provider. Our lab has 24/7 coverage in order to provide critical lab work for acute care or emergency patients.

Services available.

Laboratory testing is available in many areas, including:

  • Urinalysis

  • Microbiology

  • Complete metabolic panels

  • Blood counts

  • ABO Type and Cross

  • Hepatitis Testing

Skip a trip out of town. Have your labwork done locally.
