At ELCH, we seek two qualities for every person that draws your labs, they
must be friendly and they must be very skilled. Your experience at the
hospital is very meaningful to the River Valley Health Partner health system.
When visiting the hospital, the outpatient lab is easily accessible on
the first floor. If you are unable to have a lab test during normal business
hours, you can request a lab test at the ER.
The lab, the equipment within it and the technicians are a very important
part of your experience in the hospital. The diagnostic capabilities of
the department can quickly diagnose medical conditions such as a heart
attack and stroke. The recent updates made at ELCH enable the hospital
to perform more tests simultaneously, expand the types of tests that are
possible and result in a faster diagnosis of life threatening health problems.
Our lab team is onsite 24x7x365 to help you return to good health as quickly
We can perform outpatient tests 24 hours a day. Our outpatient lab is located
close to registration, they are open Monday – Friday from 7:00 am
to 5:00 pm. You can come to the Emergency Room outside of those hours
for blood draws. Please make certain to bring your doctor’s orders/prescription.
