Specimen Collection

Located on the first floor, Medical Mall. In-house providers submit lab orders electronically. If your lab orders are ordered under a (Military or DoD) Healthcare Provider, these orders must be in the system for lab specimens to be collected. If not, patients will be delayed as the Healthcare Provider is contacted.

If your lab orders are ordered under Network providers (to include handwritten orders), patients bring that request to the lab. Note: If your Healthcare Provider is outside the network, it may take time to verify and enter the Provider into the system. Please allow time for this as well as making time for your appointment.

Regardless of Healthcare Provider, patients must contact the ordering provider for test results.

The Specimen Collection Lab (Medical Mall, 1st floor) is open from 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. For Questions Please call 580-558-2000.
