Our on-site laboratory is ready to perform tests on clinical specimens and samples so that diagnostics can be performed without sending off to external labs. This drastically reduces waiting times for results and enables our doctors to get to the route of any conditions quickly.
If you are part of a check-up program that uses lab-testing or if your doctor decides that laboratory-based diagnostics are required, samples will be taken by a nurse (e.g blood, urine) and tests will be carried out here at First Western Hospital.
Everything we do is in the interests of making patients as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Furthermore, making a fast and accurate diagnosis can significantly improve the effectiveness of a treatment. We know that by having our own lab facilities we are reducing waiting times, able to make a diagnosis in a shorter length of time and therefore implement any necessary treatment sooner than a hospital who needs to send samples away.
