Our laboratory staff strives to provide the highest quality of care for patients with accurate and timely test results.

The Laboratory is under the direction of a board certified Pathologist and a physician. The Laboratory participates in an extensive proficiency-testing program, is surveyed every two (2) years, and accredited nationally by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA).

Staffed by a highly skilled team of technologists and technicians, our team has a combined clinical experience of greater than 150 years. Our techs work together with physicians/providers to give accurate, cost-effective, and timely results. For laboratory tests not performed in-house, we contract with Quest Diagnostics in Hays, and Lenexa, KS utilizing their extensive test menu and efficient test reporting.

The laboratory is staffed for outpatient’s services Monday – Friday from 7-4. No appointments are required for blood collections. On-call personnel are always available for after hour emergency services and essential in-patient testing.

Our PCH laboratory is a Clinical Affiliate with Barton County Community College of Great Bend, KS offering clinical rotations for students in their medical laboratory-training program.
