Clinical Laboratory and Transfusion Services

The mission of the LCH Lab is to provide high quality, quick turnaround time cost effective patient care. The laboratory provides a large menu of testing on state of the art equipment. We also provide around the clock, seven days a week service including holidays for emergency work and inpatient work.

Outpatient’s hours are 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. 7 days a week including holidays. Post-accident drug screens collections are 24 hrs. a day, 7 days a week. Any esoteric testing we cannot provide in house is sent to a reference laboratory (AEL) which provides excellent turnaround time.

The reference laboratories used by our hospital laboratory are CLIA approved. Their scope of services is in line with our scope by providing quality care in a timely manner that is cost effective. If at any time their scope of service should change and not be compatible with our scope of service then a new reference laboratory will be sought.

The Clinical Laboratory testing is performed by state licensed personal with undergraduate and graduate degrees in Medical Technology.  Assignments within the department are based upon the complexity of the testing requirements. All personnel evidence proficiency with the Laboratory Computer System and all chemistry and laboratory equipment. All personnel have an understanding and are able to demonstrate knowledge of the laboratory specific safety and infection control policies and procedures, as well as the organization safety management and utilities management programs. The physician director of the Clinical Laboratory is Board Certified in Clinical Pathology.
