Outpatient Laboratory

When you need lab work, Yuma Regional Medical Center offers you a choice of two conveniently located laboratories. Our full-service clinical laboratories provide on-site testing. We use state-of-the-art equipment, so you and your physicians get your test results quickly. Our board-certified pathologists, technologists and support staff are highly trained and dedicated to meeting the testing needs of our patients and their physicians.
 
Our lab is licensed by the state of Arizona and certified by the College of American Pathologists as well as the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). The majority of routine laboratory tests are run here in our labs, allowing our patients to benefit from shorter turnaround times. We also have an agreement with Mayo Medical Laboratories to process lab tests that are more complex or specialized in nature. For these tests, laboratory specimens are transported by air to the Mayo Medical Laboratories facility in Rochester, Minnesota for analysis, with results typically being available the next day.

Lab visits are walk-in only. Patients do not need an appointment. 
 
Our labs offer two general categories of tests:
 
Physician-referred testing:
If you have been referred by your physician to have bloodwork completed, you may have your lab tests performed at either of our two Yuma Regional Medical Center Outpatient Laboratory locations.
 
Among the many available laboratory services, your doctor can take advantage of:
 

  • Blood bank
  • Chemistry analysis
  • Coagulation
  • Hematology
  • Histology
  • Microbiology
  • Pathology
  • Urinalysis

Patient-requested testing:
You may also choose to have routine tests completed without a physician’s order. These tests will be performed on a fee-for-service basis and payment (cash, check, or credit card) will be required at the time of service. No insurance will be filed, and the test results will be mailed directly to you.
