Laboratory Services

The Laboratory personnel at Western Health are dedicated to our clients, patients and medical staff. We strive to give healthcare providers pertinent medical data in a timely, accurate, and meaningful manner, to ensure the best possible care for all patients.

Western Health provides laboratory services in specific divisions such as Procurement (Blood Collection), Pathology, Cytology/Histology, Hematology, Coagulation, Blood Bank, Chemistry, Immunochemistry, and Microbiology

  • No appointment is necessary for Procurement (Blood Collection) services.
  • A requisition from a nurse practitioner or physician is required.
  • MCP or other provincial healthcare cards must be presented upon registration.

All specimens submitted to the laboratory must have a requisition and the specimen must be labeled with the patients name, MCP # or Healthcare #, as well as date and time of collection.

Please Note:

Requisitions must be properly completed by the physician’s office before a patient will be registered for specimen collection. Patients will be referred back to their physician/nurse practitioner in situations when the requisition is not properly completed.

The following information must be included on the requisition:

  1. Patient’s first and last name
  2. Healthcare number (i.e. MCP)
  3. Physician’s name and address
  4. Dated and signed by physician/nurse practitioner
  5. Required testing

Laboratory services are available throughout the Western region at specific sites. Please refer to individual sites for hours of operation and contact information.
