Laboratory

Trained Staff with State of the Art Equipment

State of the Art Equipment & Dedicated Staff

KCHS has a full-service laboratory with state of the art equipment. It is staffed with four full time dedicated laboratory professionals. They must be accurate, reliable, have an interest in science and be able to recognize their responsibility for human lives 24/7. A variety of laboratory tests can be done at KCHS including blood banking and transfusions. Other more complicated tests are sent to LabLink in Lincoln and Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney. EKG (electrocardiograms) are also performed by the laboratory staff.

The practice of modern medicine would be impossible without the tests performed in the clinical laboratory. A medical team of technologists and technicians work together to determine the presence, extent, or absence of disease and provide data needed to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment.

The Laboratory hours are Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. After hours the technologists are on call as needed by our medical providers.

For more information on what services the KCHS lab can offer please call 308-832-3400.
