Laboratory Services at Washakie
Washakie Medical Center’s laboratory professionals are committed to providing accurate and timely laboratory results to your physician.
The skill and experience of our lab professionals at Washakie combined with Banner’s innovative culture allows a broad scope of tests to be performed at the Washakie lab.
While most laboratory testing is analyzed on site, specialty testing is sent to Mayo Medical Laboratories. Our partnership with Mayo Clinic enhances the extensive menu of laboratory tests and provides added clinical expertise and education opportunities.
Horizon Laboratory performs reference testing for our lab as well.
Laboratory tests help your physician diagnose your condition. For example, three cardiac enzymes tests are performed to help determine if a patient has suffered a heart attack. This test can be done in less than 30 minutes and will help your health care professionals determine if a hospital stay is required. We also perform tests for patients on different therapeutic drugs to make sure their medication dose is at the proper level.
As an added benefit to our community, our lab offers a Wellness Wednesday blood screening program that provides affordable, convenient and confidential health screenings without a physician’s order. Available tests include screening for anemia, general wellness, thyroid disorders, cancer, diabetic management, and cardiac risk.
We are available for outpatient services from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Laboratory personnel are on-call seven days a week, 24 hours a day for emergencies.
