Diagnostic and screening tests that your medical provider may order can be done in our well-equipped laboratory.
The laboratory at Howard County Medical Center uses state of the art, automated equipment to perform chemistry, hematology, coagulation, transfusion services, and other clinical laboratory tests. Even if a patient is seeing a physician at another location, the patient can usually arrange to have the lab test performed at Howard County Medical Center and have the results sent to the treating Physician.
The laboratory does over 100,000 tests per year. Due to their increased workload and extreme importance to our facility, the lab will be an area that will be remodeled starting in the Spring of 2014. As a result of the remodel, the lab will have increased spaced for equipment and testing and will be in close proximity with our Emergency Room.
