The role of the Laboratory is to assist our physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Our Laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and offers an exhaustive test menu.
Uniontown Hospital Laboratories comply with the standards of all accrediting agencies such as the College of American Pathologists, Pennsylvania Department of Health and CLIAA ‘88, Joint Commission and AABB.
The main laboratory is staffed 24 hours a day, year round, to take care of any emergencies that may arise, and inpatient blood work is collected every day. The Laboratory is located within Uniontown Hospital.
Outpatients may use the hospital Laboratory for blood collection from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
As of March 23rd, the ODC will be open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
Additionally, in an effort to continue mitigation of possible COVID-19, all patients presenting to the ODC will go through a screening process.
If patients exhibit flu-like symptoms they will be directed to the hospital to have their testing completed. All other patients will have their testing completed at the ODC.
Also beginning March 23rd, outpatient testing hours at the hospital will be reduced to Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 6:30 a.m. to noon.
All of these efforts are part of our developing organizational strategy to keep patients and staff safe as we continue to make process changes to combat the possible spread of COVID-19.
