The clinical laboratory provides a full range of diagnostic services including microbiology, serology, chemistry, blood bank, hematology, coagulation, and urinalysis. While most testing is performed on site by our technicians and technologists, some specialized testing is referred to outside laboratories.
The laboratory is made up of very qualified personnel to use our highly automated lab to perform tests on specimens from patients and to aid the physician in diagnosis, regulation, and monitoring of medical treatment. We also help with health fair offering screening tests. The laboratory hosts a blood drive four times each year. The techs are very gentle and do a great job of taking the fear out of needles!
