When Experience Counts
At Atrium Medical Center, we understand the importance of experienced and compassionate care. Our team of skilled professionals has advanced training and knowledge to provide the quality of care that patients deserve:
The Laboratory Services Department at Atrium Medical Center provides quality testing for inpatients, outpatients, physician offices, extended care facilities, and home health agencies. Our laboratory professionals work closely with medical staff to provide clinical and anatomical pathology services. On average, between 70 and 80 percent of all medical decisions are based on laboratory data.
The laboratory at Atrium offers a comprehensive variety of tests — including thousands of different diagnostic tests, biopsy readings, and screenings — that help physicians diagnose and treat patients more quickly and effectively.
For early detection, screening and evaluation, our sophisticated capabilities at multiple sites throughout the facilities of Atrium Medical Center allow patients to receive the highest quality of care. The combination of our advanced technology and highly-skilled staff delivers comprehensive care, and a positive and safe experience for our patients.
A blood test is the extraction of blood from a vein, often from the arm, followed by laboratory analysis of the blood sample. Analysis can include a variety of tests on the patient’s plasma or serum, including tests for:
- Drug effectiveness
- White/red cell levels
A urinalysis is the physical, chemical, and microscopic examination of urine. It involves a number of tests to detect and measure various compounds that pass through the urine.
Where can I have it done?
The test can be done at:
- Atrium Medical Center
- Offsite satellite locations: Middletown, Walden Ponds, Mason, Lebanon, Trenton
Quality and Convenience
In order to make it as convenient as possible for patients who need tests, our outpatient laboratory specimen collection is located directly inside the main hospital entrance. Now patients no longer have to physically travel to the testing laboratory — only their specimen does.
We also offer a laboratory specimen collection station located in the Professional Office Building, which is convenient for patients visiting physicians in that building. The laboratory at Atrium also offers conveniently located satellite outpatient collection sites. These patient service centers are comprehensive, offering collection of many types of specimens, everything from blood to urinalysis to throat cultures.
Professionalism Every Step of the Way
Our laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists and The Joint Commission. In addition, we’re affiliated with CompuNet Clinical Laboratories. CompuNet acts as our primary reference laboratory, performing low-volume esoteric testing with results directly downloaded into the computer system at Atrium.
