Who We Are
The HCHC Hospital Laboratory is staffed by 9 full-time employees with professional experience in the Medical Laboratory. Each employee in the Lab is accredited by a national accrediting agency and has passed a national board (exam) to ensure competency.
What We Do
The main responsibility of the HCHC Hospital Lab is to perform those tests that the physician feels are necessary to the treatment of inpatients. The Lab also provides outpatient support for the Physicians Offices in town and the neighboring communities. The community is also supported by Lab Personnel going to the care centers in Mt. Pleasant, Wayland, Winfield, Danville and New London to collect samples to help maintain the health of our seniors.
As a service to the community in general, the Lab collects DOT drug screens and DOT breath alcohol tests.
Any testing not provided in house is collected and sent to Mayo Medical Laboratories (affiliated with Mayo Clinics) and CLS of Ottumwa on a daily basis.
