The Student Health and Wellness Center operates a full-service clinical laboratory and provides hematological, chemical, and bacteriological testing. The Lab also accepts orders from outside physicians.
The Lab is a US-government-inspected facility that meets the Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendment (CLIA) requirements. CLIA compliance ensures that the testing performed by the SHWC lab meets the accuracy, reliability, and timeliness requirements for quality healthcare.
Any student who is being seen by their own physician has the option of using the SHWC Lab for the lab tests necessary to monitor drug levels, pre-operative lab work, etc. The lab will fax or mail results to the student's physician. This allows the student to benefit from the low cost, high-quality service available at the SHWC lab.
Monthly lab specials are available and allow students, faculty, and staff to have screening tests at reduced rates.
