Laboratory

The Gothenburg Health Lab performs lab tests for patients from a wide geographic area. They can perform tests ordered from outside our service community by any licensed Physician or Provider.

They also offer pre-employment drug screens and random drug screens for businesses. Any business requesting Employee Bloodwork Screenings can also contact our Lab staff. The GH Lab conducts post-accident drug screens for law enforcement.

Therapeutic phlebotomy (removing excess blood in a patient that has produced too much) is also performed by the staff. 

The Gothenburg Health Lab offers Direct Access Testing (DAT). Individuals can come to the laboratory and receive wellness screenings for certain tests, without a written physician's order. Screenings available through Direct Access Testing allow you to manage your health and health concerns.
