We provide screening and diagnostic testing in clinical chemistry, hematology, coagulation, microbiology, urinalysis, and serology, in support of our beneficiaries and their providers. Tests not performed on-site are shipped to external military and/or civilian reference laboratories. All tests must be ordered by an authorized or privileged health care provider. If your provider tells you to report to the laboratory for fasting blood work, please refrain from eating or drinking anything other than water for at least 12 hours before the blood collection. A laboratory technician should always ask you for your full name and date of birth before collecting any specimen from you. In most cases, a parent or legal guardian must give verbal consent for specimen collections on patients who are less than 18 years old. The laboratory does not release test results directly to patients. Please contact the Medical Records section, your health care provider or use TRICARE Online
to obtain your results. Result turn-around time varies depending on the test ordered; most tests performed in house are completed the same day and most tests sent to reference laboratories are completed within seven to 10 business days.
