Laboratory

Laboratory testing is a common tool for detecting and confirming medical conditions and determining the best course of treatment. Under the clinical supervision of a pathologist, the UCGH lab serves our patients with state-of-the-art test equipment, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Tests done in the lab enable a provider to confirm a clinical impression, establish or rule out a diagnosis, monitor therapy, establish a prognosis, and screen for or detect disease.
