Laboratory Services stands out as the testing resource in the region. Increasingly, health secrets are revealed in the laboratory. Small samples of fluids and tissue contain the vital knowledge about your well-being. We're your central source for quality testing.
More than 800 types of tests are performed in the Blood Bank, Chemistry, Cytology, Hematology, Immunology, Microbiology, Surgical Pathology, and Toxicology departments. This diverse testing capability is a reason we perform more tests in-house than other area hospitals—80% is performed on-site. Very specialized tests are sent to ARUP Laboratories, a national clinical and anatomic pathology reference laboratory and a worldwide leader in innovative laboratory research and development.
Our Reference Laboratory program serves the needs of area physicians. It is complemented by our Outpatient Laboratory program for acquiring samples. We also provide a Corporate Drug Testing program for the health of your company.
Each of these programs benefits from our commitment to providing the finest hospital-based laboratory services in the region.
