Do You Have Lab Orders From An Outside Provider?
If you have a specialist or other healthcare provider that has given you lab orders for tests to be collected and processed, these are external lab orders. Palouse Medical is a Physician Office Lab, which means that we can process all of our internal lab orders in-house, sending out those that we cannot process to referral sites when needed. However, as a Physician Office Lab, we are not able to be the primary referral site for external lab orders.
In an effort to ensure continuity of care with the specialist who has ordered your labs, it is critical that these labs be collected and processed at the right location. To help you identify where you will need to go for external testing, we have made the following lists below, please click on the tabbed information buttons to review our testing options.
Unless ALL TESTS listed on your external order can be collected and processed in-house by Palouse Medical, you will need to take your external lab orders to be completed at a different location, such as a hospital laboratory or another medical lab facility.
