Laboratory Services


Laboratory professionals provide a unique role in providing quality laboratory test results that contribute to healthcare for patients. Virtually every diagnosis begins with a laboratory test. Our Laboratory at WCHC provides a wide range of tests that your physician relies upon to provide your care. Working behind the scenes, our laboratory performs over 110,000 tests annually. WCHC's laboratory is staffed 24 hours a day and provides service for hospital inpatients, the emergency department, clinic physicians, and outpatients. In addition, many patients who are followed by Iowa City and Cedar Rapids doctors have laboratory tests needed to monitor medication and chronic illness performed here. This convenience enables patients to have local service while the test results are interrupted by their out-of-town physician.

The WCHC laboratory staffs an experienced group of health professionals. WCHC boasts a staff of seven full-time medical technologists and three full-time phlebotomists with a combined 165 years of experience at 28 different laboratories. Integrating 165 years of experience with excellent customer service, our laboratory guarantees the best possible visit at WCHC.
