Laboratory Services

Did you know 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 provides service for hospital's inpatient, emergency, and outpatient departments as well as for our clinics. 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 communicated to their out-of-town physician.

The WCHC laboratory staffs a highly technical and competent group of health professionals. We boast a staff of seven full-time medical technologists and three full-time Phlebotomists with a combined total of over 150 years of experience from many laboratories across the United States. Our highly experienced staff operate the latest equipment, utilizing current and cutting-edge technology to deliver highly reliable and accurate testing to healthcare providers across the state of Iowa. Integrating this experience with excellent customer service, our laboratory guarantees the best possible visit at WCHC.
