Laboratory professionals work together to provide accurate results for patients of all ages. Using state-of-the-art technology and instrumentation, laboratory professionals perform tests that detect potential health problems; the sooner a disease is caught, the greater the likelihood of a positive outcome.
Lake Regional's laboratory provides testing for both inpatients and outpatients. Pathology, chemistry, hematology, blood bank, histology and microbiology services are available, and more than 800 procedures can be performed.
The lab is staffed by board-certified pathologists, certified medical technologists, medical technicians, histotechnicians and phlebotomists. A board-certified pathologist is available for consultation 24 hours a day. The anatomic pathology laboratory provides service 10 hours a day, Monday through Friday.
The lab is located on the hospital's second floor. Enter the hospital's main entrance, and check in at the Patient Registration desk in the main lobby. After registering, continue past the gift shop, and take the first elevators on your right to the second floor. The lab is on your right as you exit the elevators.
Lake Regional's Laboratory is accredited by The Joint Commission and certified by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) program.
