Hiawatha Community Hospital Laboratory Services offers a wide range of tests to help physicians diagnose and manage patient conditions. Tests must be ordered by a physician. The two most common requested tests are for blood samples and urine samples. Depending on the type of test your physician orders, tests may need to be performed at a specific time of day and/or require diet restrictions. No appointment is needed for lab testing. Results of your tests will be sent directly to your physician. You may receive separate bills from Hiawatha Community Hospital and any physician whose services are required (pathologists, radiologists, etc.).
Our staff of certified medical technologists and medical laboratory technicians, along with a supportive team of caring and highly trained employees, performs many billable procedures annually and processes more than hundreds of specimens per day. Sophisticated equipment and state-of-the-art technology are utilized to ensure quality and timely patient testing.
