The laboratory at Desert View Hospital is responsible for conducting the many tests your physician will order. The information obtained from these tests is most valuable to your physician in prescribing the treatment you receive.
The lab is licensed by the state of Nevada and the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA). The lab is inspected by both state and federal agencies. We offer a complete range of diagnostic testing, most of which is performed on site.
The lab is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week (including holidays) with highly trained medical technologists, technicians and phlebotomists. The Laboratory Department is under the direct supervision of a certified pathologist.
The lab performs analysis on blood and other body fluids. Services include general chemistry, general hematology, general coagulation, limited blood banking, urinalysis, microbiology and general serology.
The outpatient lab is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon.
