Why are lab tests performed?

Here are a few reasons why:

  • Check for health problems you may be experiencing.
  • To show if a medication is working properly.
  • Help the provider make an accurate and timely diagnosis.
  • Detect conditions which may not have any signals or symptoms.

What Lab tests are offered at TRH?

  • The Lab at TRH provides a wide number of tests.
  • Based upon the type of test ordered by your provider, we can perform it on site or at our reference lab.

How do you prepare for testing?

  • Please follow your provider's instructions on whether you should eat or drink. However, that does not mean you cannot take your medication or drink small amounts of water beforehand.
  • Always inform the person drawing your blood if you are allergic to latex (rubber products).
  • If you have a urine test, first morning urine samples are preferred.

What to do upon arrival to the Hospital:

  • Allow yourself plenty of time to go through patient registration.
  • Report to the Outpatient Registration Department with your physician order, acceptable ID, and Insurance or Medical coverage card.
  • Outpatient Registration is located on the first floor (see map)
  • After registering, report to the laboratory (see map) with your orders and a laboratory assistant will proceed to collect a specimen from you.
