Union Hospital's Laboratory is an essential diagnostic resource for local physicians. Our state-of-the-art instruments enable staff to perform hundreds of thousands of tests each year. The Laboratory is staffed by board-certified pathologists and registered technologists.
Outpatient Lab Testing
The Outpatient Lab testing service is one of the busiest areas of the hospital. Hundreds of patients come each week for blood draws, to drop off specimens, or for other Outpatient Lab test procedures.
Patient Registration and the Outpatient Lab Draw area is located in the hospital’s Main Lobby. Unless you are a Lab Regular (see below) or coming for pre-op testing, there is no appointment or pre-registration required.
Hours of Operation:
Monday through Friday 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday 6:00 a.m. to Noon
Every effort is made to complete each patient’s Lab work in a timely manner while ensuring accuracy and quality. While each day is different, patients coming for Outpatient Lab work may want to consider arriving after Noon, since mornings are usually the busiest time of the day.
To avoid unnecessary delays, please be sure to…
- Bring your doctor’s order with the diagnosis as required.
- Have your insurance card with you.
- Take advantage of phone-in scheduling and pre-registration if you’re a Lab Regular.
In order to make it more convenient for our patients, Union Hospital will provide phone-in scheduling and pre-registration for "Regulars"…Lab Outpatients with standing orders. Phone-in scheduling and pre-registration is available only after the patient’s first visit.
Our patients' blood and blood products needs depend on the loyal support of local blood donors. Blood can be donated weekdays at Union Hospital's Blood Donor Room in the Laboratory or at any of several Bloodmobile locations around Tuscarawas County each month. Learn more about our Blood Center.
