Timely, Accurate Medical Testing

Medical testing is a key component of providing accurate and effective healthcare. At El Centro Regional Medical Center, doctors rely on a full-service testing facility staffed with Clinical Laboratory Scientists, Pathologists, Medical Laboratory Technicians, and various other highly-trained professionals to provide the insight needed to help patients get better. The lab is staffed 24/7 in case of emergencies.

Some of the lab tests we offer are:

  • Blood and body fluid analysis
  • Therapeutic drug monitoring
  • Culturing and antibiotic sensitivity
  • Virus identification
  • Blood donations and storage
  • And more

Our detail-oriented lab technicians efficiently help our patients get a diagnosis from their medical team, and they are committed to getting fast results with short turnaround times.
