A medical laboratory is a place where tests are usually done on clinical specimens in order to obtain information about the health of a patient as pertaining to other diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. JCHC has a full laboratory, with the ability to do 90% of the lab work that our patients need.
For lab work that is not done in house, we send specimens daily to laboratories in the area, and usually have results back within a few days. JCHC laboratory has a wellness blood draw for the community every other Thursday morning. You don't need a doctor's referral for the blood draw, but you do need to call ahead, and make an appointment. Click "Contact Us" below to make your appointment.
Wellness Screenings Every Other Thursday
The Laboratory at JCHC offers a "mini" health fair blood draw.
We call it the Wellness Screening, and it is offered every other Thursday from 7:00 - 10:00 am.
A doctor's order is not needed, but you will need to schedule an appointment with the lab at 684-6174. Results will be mailed to you by the following week.
You must fast for 12 hours, just like at the health fair, to get accurate results. Please drink water and take your medications as prescribed.
