To help detect and monitor disease, St. Joseph's Hospital offers round-the-clock comprehensive laboratory services seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Performing thousands of lab tests a year, our lab is equipped with advanced computerized equipment for quick and accurate results for both inpatient and outpatient testing.
Our laboratory services have been recognized by three leading laboratory accrediting agencies, proving our commitment to quality. This includes the College of American Pathology, the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act.
Outpatient testing is available Monday through Friday 6 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and on Saturdays 7 a.m.- 2:30 p.m; there are no regular hours for outpatient testing on Sundays and holidays. Although appointments are not required for outpatient testing (except for those patients requiring therapeutic phlebotomies), we ask that you please stop at patient registration before going to the laboratory. Patients should also bring a physician's order with them or fax it to (618) 651-2775.
For those patients requiring therapeutic phlebotomies, an appointment is required and can be scheduled by calling (618) 651-2783. Therapeutic phlebotomies are scheduled between 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
