Welcome to Lindsborg Community Hospital Laboratory


Do you need lab work for an upcoming procedure, or maybe blood tests requested by your physician for a routine health check? Perhaps you are receiving therapeutic treatments out-of-town that require frequent lab testing for your physician. The Lindsborg Community Hospital laboratory offers convenient testing close to your home and work...even if your care is not managed locally.

Our experienced and highly skilled certified medical technologists and phlebotomists provide prompt, friendly, comprehensive services for adult and pediatric patients. Every effort is made to complete each patient's lab work in a timely manner while ensuring accuracy and quality. We offer same day testing and no appointment is necessary.

In June, 2011,the combined LCH/LRHC labs scored a perfect review during the federally mandated CLIA survey. The surveyor reported zero deficiencies during this biennial on-site survey.

CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment) regulates laboratories performing testing on human specimens and includes laboratory standards for proficiency testing, facility administration, personnel qualifications and quality controls. CLIA applies the standards to all laboratory settings, including commercial, hospital based, and physician office laboratories.

Farah Erickson, MT(ASCP), Director of Laboratory Services for Lindsborg Community Hospital received a verbal commendation from the surveyor on the hospital's extensive quality assurance program, and noted that a deficiency-free hospital survey is rare.

"Everyone I come in contact with is kind, considerate and knowledgeable."..."respectful" ..."very courteous"..."I was in and out quickly" ...are just a few of the comments recorded on patient satisfaction surveys. "I have high expectations since I've become accustomed to the excellent service I find here so my expectations weren't exceeded, but they certainly continue to be met".
