The lab provides a full range of services including surgical pathology, cyto-pathology, hematology, coagulation, chemistry, urinalysis, serology, microbiology, and transfusion services. Lab tests not performed at this site are referred to an accredited referral lab for testing. Referral tests may take approximately two weeks. All patients requiring fasting blood tests must fast 12 to 14 hours unless otherwise directed by the requesting provider; only water is authorized. You may also take prescription medications, as directed by your provider, during this timeframe. For glucose tolerance testing, or GTT, patients will remain in laboratory until completion. One-hour GTT for obstetrician patients are performed Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. No fasting is required for this test. Two and three-hour GTT patients must be scheduled in advance. Note: Requesting providers' orders must be in the computer system at the time of scheduling. In addition, a 12-hour fast is required prior to specimen collection. To obtain lab results, please contact your requesting provider. Printed copies of lab test results may be obtained through the Release of Information office, located in the Outpatient Records department.
