Laboratory

In an effort to keep our patients safe during the COVID-19 National Emergency and to help reduce wait times, San Juan Regional Medical Center is moving to scheduled appointments only for laboratory draw services. This change is effective beginning Monday, November 30. 

The Outpatient Diagnostic Center and Medical Office Building locations are available for scheduled laboratory appointments by calling 505.609.6285. San Juan Regional Medical Center’s Laboratory is dedicated to ensuring excellence in customer service for our patients with courteous customer service representatives and well-trained technicians to meet patient needs. If possible, patients are asked to come alone in an effort to continue practicing social distancing and prevent the spread of infectious diseases. If a patient does require assistance, a maximum of one support person will be allowed to accompany them. All individuals entering these locations will be screened, including having their temperature taken, to ensure everyone’s safety. 

Two convenient locations:

Medical Office Building

407 South Schwartz, Farmington, NM 87401

Laboratory Hours: Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

 

Outpatient Diagnostic Center

2300 E. 30th St. Building C, Farmington, NM 87401

Hours: Monday to Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

 

San Juan Regional Medical Center provides high-quality, cost-effective laboratory testing to all patients in the Four Corners region. A doctor or other healthcare provider may recommend lab work for a patient to assist in the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of many medical conditions.

Clinical, anatomical, and cytology testing is completed on-site by board-certified pathologists and technologists. For clinical testing, blood and other samples—such as a throat swab—are collected from a patient and submitted for analysis. Anatomical and cytology testing is performed on anything that is removed by a biopsy or surgery in order to determine or exclude the presence of cancer.

Contact your doctor or provider if you have any questions regarding the tests your provider ordered.

All patients scheduled for glucose or lipid testing should fast 12 to 16 hours before testing. Please do not drink or eat anything except for water.

The laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists and DNV GL Business Assurance USA, Inc.
