On-Site Laboratory Q & A

What is an on-site laboratory?

The on-site laboratory is one of the convenient health services available at Providence Women's Healthcare. The state-of-the-art practice is one of the most well-respected women’s health practices in the area.

To make care more convenient for their patients, Providence Women's Healthcare has an on-site laboratory.

What testing occurs at the on-site laboratory?

Providence Women's Healthcare partners with LabCorp for its on-site laboratory service and provides a full range of tests. Some of the types of tests available include:

Urinalysis

You may need a urinalysis for your regular prenatal care visits or during your annual well-woman exam. The urinalysis assesses organ function and screens for illnesses.

Complete blood count (CBC)

The CBC is a blood test that assesses your blood count, including your red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, hemoglobin, and hematocrit. The CBC checks for anemia and looks for infections. 

Basic metabolic panel (BMP)

The BMP is a blood test that measures your blood glucose, sodium, potassium, oxygen, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and creatinine levels. The test screens for diabetes and kidney disease and may help assess your hydration. 

Comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP)

The CMP includes the same blood tests as the BMP, plus tests for your liver enzymes and specific proteins. Your provider uses the information from your CMP to evaluate organ function. 

Providence Women's Healthcare may also run on-site labs to test for pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) like HPV, and abnormal cervical cell changes (Pap smear). 

How does the on-site laboratory work?

Your provider collects your blood work or urine during your in-office visit. They recommend the lab test best suited for you based on your health needs and the reason for your visit. 

Though Providence Women's Healthcare provides on-site laboratory services, billing for lab testing comes from LabCorp or another lab testing facility. If you have any concerns about the cost of care for the on-site lab testing, contact your health insurance provider to discuss coverage.
