ROCK SPRINGS — Beginning Monday, outpatient medical laboratory testing at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County will be temporarily housed in a different location.
In an effort to ensure patient, staff and community safety, the outpatient lab will be housed in the MHSC Foundation offices. There is no need to come directly into the hospital. The new location has a separate entrance between the hospital’s main door and the Specialty Clinics, according to MHSC Public Information Officer Deb Sutton.
The Foundation building offers easy access and ample parking, including several handicapped-accessible spaces. The laboratory will continue to operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekends. It will be staffed to meet all patient needs, including full admission services.
The same services that patients have received in the past will still be offered, such as blood draws and collections for other
medical laboratory tests.
For more information, please call the lab at 307-352-8360. Wellness screenings continue to be available every Tuesday and Wednesday. Walk-ins are welcome.
