The laboratory at Coffey County Hospital provides a full array of services with excellent equipment and a highly-trained staff. The lab is inspected by the State of Kansas every two years and is in compliance with federal regulations.
A staff of seven serves Coffey County Hospital from 6:30 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday, and is on-call weekends and holidays. Outpatient tests are scheduled weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. A technologist is available at all times for emergencies.
Lab tests may only be performed with a written order from a physician. Many tests are performed internally, but some tests must be sent to a reference lab in Kansas City.
The lab completed 24,004 tests for hospital and clinic patients last year.
