The Laboratory at Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers is accredited by the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP). Being CAP accredited is like a gold seal of approval.
There are several laboratory sections at Morris Hospital, including chemistry, serology, hematology, cytology, microbiology, immunology, coagulation, histology, urinalysis, and the blood bank. Morris Hospital’s Laboratory performs well over 860,000 tests each year for hospital patients, as well as for independent physician offices and nursing homes.
Patients may come to any of these Morris Hospital locations for specimen collection. The Laboratory collection sites are closed on major holidays and may have modified hours on Christmas Eve & New Year’s Eve.
WALK-INS ARE WELCOME for laboratory testing. Walk-ins should have their physician’s order with them when they present for testing or make sure the physician’s order has been submitted to Morris Hospital’s registration. A health plan identification card and photo ID are also required at the time of testing. To assure accurate results, please follow fasting instructions if applicable.
