Big Bend Regional Medical Center’s laboratory is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We offer a range of inpatient and outpatient procedures and the department includes a urine chemistry department, chemistry department and hematology/coagulation department.
The lab also includes a fully stocked blood bank ready to give transfusions when needed. We can also take prescriptions from doctors all over the country. If you’re just passing through and need a service, we can fax your results to your primary care physician the same day.
Routine services include:
- Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT)
- Automated Hematological Tests
- Blood Chemistries
- Lab Tests
- Protime (PT)
We also offer quick serological tests to detect conditions such as respiratory syncytial virus, group A streptococcus (strep throat) and infectious mononucleosis (mono).
Hours and results
The lab is open for outpatient testing Monday – Friday: 8 am – 7 pm and walk-ins are welcome. If we perform your test on-site, we can provide same day results. Otherwise, tests must be sent to the reference lab, LabCorp, so the results may take longer. Once we receive them, we immediately pass them on to your doctor.
