Laboratory

LABORATORY SERVICES

The laboratory serves both inpatients and outpatients with a variety of services including transfusion, phlebotomy services for reference labs, clinics, and health fairs within the region.

We accept lab orders from local physicians, as well as out-of-town physicians.

For orders to be performed, we require a written order, signed by your physician, with the tests needed and a diagnosis related to the testing being ordered.

All lab specimens that need to be sent to Quest Diagnostics or Clinical Pathology Labs (CPL), need to be drawn at the Registration/Lab Service Office in the Professional Office Building. If you have any questions, please call 361.293.2321 ext. 505.
