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 (Assisted Living) 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.
A new screenings program at Freeman Regional Health Services allows an individual to order tests without a visit to the doctor's office or insurance involvement. The tests are intended to be a helpful tool but should not be used as a substitute for a regular doctor's visit.
All the testing is done in the FRHS accredited laboratory and performed by the professional staff. Test procedures are a screening tool and not designed to diagnose an illness. It is the responsibility of the patient to initiate medical followup to confirm test results.
Adult patients may request their own testing. Parents/legal guardians may also request testing on their children under age 18.
These screenings are offered on a "cash only" basis. No insurance or Medicare/Medicaid claim will be filed. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check or credit card.
