Our hospital laboratory, a full-service lab with the most up-to-date equipment and integrated information system, conducts inpatient and outpatient testing services 24/7. Our hospital laboratory is proud to be a College of American Pathologists (CAP) accredited lab, which is one of the most prestigious certifications in the industry.
The dedicated, highly trained team consists of certified technologists, technicians, phlebotomists, a histology aide and a board-certified pathologist. Each medical technologist is certified through the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) or American Medical Technologists (AMT), distinguishing them with education and specialized schooling.
We have the ability to perform many tests on site, to ensure they are in the hands of your provider quickly. Each year, we complete approximately half a million tests in our lab, which assists in 70% of the medical decisions at our facility. Our on-site, board-certified pathologist works with our surgeons on a daily basis to ensure surgical specimens are sent for processing in a timely manner. On a case-by-case basis, the laboratory may work with surgery to ensure adequate tissue collection and may provide a preliminary diagnosis while the patient is still in surgery.
Our clinic labs in Clinton, Osceola, Warsaw and Windsor utilize the same state-of-the-art equipment and integrated information system as the hospital lab to conduct tests required by your provider. Patients may go to any of our Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare labs and know that testing will be performed in the same way for consistent results. Each lab has the same equipment to ensure you receive safe, quality and cost-effective testing with an accurate and efficient diagnosis. All of our clinic labs are accredited by the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation (COLA), ensuring you receive the best quality care, close to home.
