HHD's Laboratory Director
The Haxtun Hospital District Lab Director, Jane Lawler, brings 28 years of experience to her position. All lab technicians hold certifications such as American Medical Technologist (AMT) and American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).
The lab is CLIA certified, maintaining the highest national standards for quality and accuracy of testing and results.
HHD's medical laboratory provides a full range of laboratory testing on site, with results available same day. Testing that cannot be performed on site is forwarded to Pathology Services Laboratory in North Platte, Nebraska. HHD has partnered with Pathology Services for over 30 years with great service and support.
Within the last year, the Haxtun Hospital Foundation has provided financial support which enabled the HHD lab to purchase equipment. The new equipment provides additional in house lab testing which creates a much shorter turnaround time for physicians and patients awaiting results. The additional tests are TSH and FT4, useful in the diagnosis and management of thyroid disorders.
Physician's orders are required for all diagnostic tests but an appointment to complete the tests is not necessary during business hours.
Lab Hours:Monday - Friday, 6:00am - 6:00pm
