Register at Patient Registration on the main floor of Woodstock Hospital. The Laboratory Department is also located on the main floor.
Accessing this Service:
A written referral from a physician is required, and you must bring your referral/requisition and your health card with you.
Registered Laboratory Technologists perform the monitoring of drug levels, cholesterol testing, urinalysis, nutritional status, cancer identification, infectious organism identification and organ malfunction among other diagnostic tests.
Woodstock Hospital's Laboratory Services Department has received award-winning recognition from Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) for meeting their respective targets relating to the turn-around time for pathology reporting after surgery. Turn-around time for pathology reporting set by CCO is 14 days, while Woodstock Hospital’s results are reported in less than 3 working days. This decreases the amount of time our patients have to wait for surgeon consults, procedures and surgical specimen results. The quicker patients get their results, the sooner they can get on the road to recovery
For this walk-in service, you do not have to have an appointment but you must either be a resident or seeing a physician within Oxford County.
