Laboratory Services

Foothill Regional Medical Center offers comprehensive clinical laboratory testing and services with oversight by a qualified pathologist physician. Our pathologists are board-certified in anatomic and clinical pathology. Laboratory results are integrated into the patient’s electronic medical record for immediate access.

The clinical laboratory is staffed with qualified clinical laboratory scientists and certified phlebotomy technicians who communicate directly with healthcare providers for lab values that need immediate attention. The laboratory services include blood draws and specimen handling for tests such as hematology, coagulation, urinalysis, microbiology and transfusion services. Certain common tests may be performed at the bedside by nursing staff under the oversight of qualified laboratory personnel.

Our laboratory and pathology departments are fully accredited by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program and licensed by the California Department of Public Health.
