Laboratory

Our laboratory department works closely with physicians in the surrounding areas as well as throughout the state. Test results can be mailed or faxed directly to physicians, which allows patients to undergo tests close to home even if their physician is outside of the community. Most testing is completed within hours, but when a test requires a special reference laboratory, the results are typically available within 2-3 days. All normal test results are also available to patients through our patient portal.

All of our laboratory technologists and technicians are specially trained and certified.  In addition, they maintain high quality control standards for each test they perform to ensure absolute accuracy and reliability.

Call Meade District Hospital at (620) 873-2141 and ask for Tammy Bird, Director of the Laboratory Department, for a comprehensive service menu to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of various illnesses.
