Laboratory Services

Since 1960, the Department of Laboratories at North Oaks Health System has served the laboratory needs of our community and surrounding parishes. In an effort to provide the highest level of testing, our laboratory is accredited by:
We process lab results 24-hours a day, 7 days a week (including weekends and holidays) to provide accurate and timely results.  We average 2,600 tests per day, and more than 790,000 tests annually!

Anatomical Pathology

North Oaks Laboratory processes most tissue specimens onsite. Routine anatomical pathology results can be expected in 1-2 business days. In-house processing means quicker results and faster diagnosis and treatment for patients.

Automated Laboratory System

North Oaks Laboratory is on the fast track with a new state-of-the-art Automated Laboratory System.  North Oaks is the only hospital on the Northshore with this advanced technology which can provide:
  • Faster results and dependable sample routing
  • Barcode scanning of samples
  • Enhanced accuracy and patient safety
