Getting Lab Results Fast

It’s always important to get labs done fast, but for ER patients it is often critical. That’s why Valley Regional Medical Center has point of care testing in the Emergency Room using a specialized iStat portable clinical analyzer and Nova Glucose Meter.

Speed is also a goal focus for tests that need to be sent to our main lab. Our state-of-the-art lab equipment is able to run tests and generate reports quickly. For example, for a common lab test called a CBC (complete blood count), doctors can have results in their hands in less than 15 minutes.

Lab speed is also an important part of Valley Regional’s Stroke Program. A fast laboratory turnaround gets doctor the results they need to start treating patients as quickly as possible.
