Burnett Medical Center provides 24-hour laboratory coverage. The laboratory team performs approximately 4,000 tests per month in disciplines of microbiology, chemistry, hematology, urinalysis, blood banking and serology. Most tests are performed in house, while other specialized testing is sent to a reference lab with results returning in as little as 24 hours.

Direct Access Testing

The Laboratory Department offers Direct Access Testing, which allows you to choose the lab tests you would like performed, at a reduced price, from a select menu of tests. An order from your provider to receive a test is not required. Your insurance will not be billed for these services; payment by cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover is required upfront before tests are performed.


The Laboratory Department also hosts a student externship from Rasmussen or Pine Technical College for their MLT programs.
