Laboratory

Services


The Medical Laboratory is an essential department of Vernon Memorial Healthcare providing service throughout the hospital and clinics 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The lab reaches every area of the hospital: each nursing unit, patient room, department and clinic with quiet efficiency. Many patient diagnoses, from strep throat to leukemia, are largely based on lab results, which makes our quality critical.

VMH’s highly skilled technologists, technicians and lab assistants make up the laboratory team, making sure specimens are identified properly and results are reported accurately. They work together to determine the presence, extent or absence of disease and provide valuable data needed to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment. Each year, the VMH lab performs more than 210,000 tests on more than 22,400 patients, with many unique procedures available.

ORDERING LABS & LAB RESULTS

How are lab tests ordered?
The laboratory personnel must first have a healthcare provider order to have the appropriate specimens collected and tests performed. We will ask you to register prior to having any testing done to assure appropriate information release and billing procedures are followed. Your test results will be sent to the person or organization you indicated upon registering.

Do I need to make an appointment for lab work?

Yes. Call 608-637-2101 to schedule an appointment (M-F: 7 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Sat/Sun 8 a.m. to Noon)

Can I get copies of my lab results?
Yes, copies may be obtained from the Health Information Management department at VMH, provided that test specimens were collected at VMH. Otherwise, contact your healthcare providers for copies of the results. Lab results may also appear in MyChart.
