When you need a laboratory test or blood work done, you want fast, accurate and convenient service. That’s what you can expect from Halifax Regional’s Diagnostic Laboratory.
The laboratory is located on the first floor near Outpatient Registration. Our laboratory services include anatomic pathology and clinical lab analysis and evaluations to assist physicians in diagnosing and monitoring a variety of medical conditions.
What to Expect From Laboratory Services
Most tests performed in the laboratory will require a small blood sample. Specially trained staff will perform venipunctures, or will collect blood from the finger or heel. The Laboratory Department will also test specimens such as urine samples, throat cultures, biopsies and various other samples.
The laboratory is open to outpatients Monday through Friday, 6:30 am – 6:00 pm. Inpatient services are available 24 hours a day.
