The lab at Freeman Regional Health Services offers a comprehensive menu of lab tests, serving Freeman Medical Center, Oakview Terrace, Rural Medical Clinics in Freeman, Marion, Menno and Bridgewater, The Salem Mennonite Home in Freeman, and Menno-Olivet Care Center.
Inpatient and outpatient laboratory services provided within the department include blood gas analysis, bacteriology, blood banking, chemistry analysis, hematology and coagulation, urinalysis, electrocardiography and halter monitoring.
Tests for liver, kidney and cardiac function are done routinely, as well as tests for therapeutic drug monitoring, anemia profiles, cholesterol checks, blood typing, strep screens, glucose screening and pregnancy tests. Because technological advancements are constantly changing and improving, the lab strives to stay current with equipment so the newest and latest tests may be performed with the most accurate results.
Patients may come to the lab with orders from any physician, and the Freeman Lab will perform the tests. The majority of the tests are done the same day as requested.
