Laboratory and Pathology

Laboratory and pathology services  

West Shore Medical Center provides laboratory and pathology services that are virtually unmatched by any other northern Michigan facility of its size.

The lab is staffed by a highly qualified team of certified laboratory technologists and laboratory aides. These individuals are skilled in such disciplines as bacteriology, general immunology, chemistry, urinalysis, endocrinology, toxicology, hematology, coagulation, immunohematology, and histopathology.

The wide range of medical testing abilities is available not only to hospital inpatients and outpatients, but also to local nursing homes, adult care facilities, and area employers. The lab provides testing services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. An extensive range of tests are performed on site, providing a turn around time of 24 hours or less.

The lab has been computerized so that area physicians can get results in their offices quickly. In a partnership with Munson Healthcare, we also have an interfaced lab system, which provides a quick and convenient transfer of results to the physicians at other locations. The computerized lab technology has made it possible for over 1,500 physicians to be connected via network computers or through fax.
