Laboratory test results help diagnose illness and monitor treatment. A physician’s diagnosis and treatment can rely heavily on the outcome of a clinical lab test. Burgess Health Center’s laboratory department provides 24-hour quality lab services to inpatients, outpatients, and physicians.

Certified technicians supported by modern technology perform laboratory services. A pathologist visits weekly to offer consultations with primary care doctors.

Although a health care provider must order a laboratory test, he or she does not need to be a member of the Burgess Health Center medical staff. Lab tests can be performed close to home or work, no matter where a patient’s doctor practices. All that is required is an order from a physician.

The laboratory at Burgess includes a full menu of diagnostic and follow-up testing to provide you with quality care.

The lab department also offers Wellness Testing on a regular basis. Call 712-423-9363 to schedule your Wellness Lab appointment. You may view the Wellness Lab Brochure on our website for more details.

To help you better understand the many clinical lab tests that are part of routine care as well as diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of conditions and diseases, the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) has developed a web site to educate the public.
