Laboratory Services

Southern California Hospital at Culver City offers comprehensive clinical laboratory testing and services. And since most testing is done at the hospital on a 24/7/365-basis, there is a quick turnaround time for routine test results. As test results are completed, they are integrated into the patient’s electronic medical record so physicians can efficiently access the complete medical history.

Our highly trained, dedicated and courteous technicians communicate directly with healthcare providers to answer questions about test results. At SCH-CC, you can rely on receiving accurate and reliable laboratory services, including blood draws and specimen handling for tests such as hematology, coagulation, urinalysis, microbiology, and transfusion services. Certain common tests that are performed at the bedside by nursing staff are done so under the purview of trained laboratory personnel.

The hospital’s Pathology Department is responsible for the oversight of the laboratory, as well as providing our patients and medical practitioners with accurate and timely tissue diagnoses. The department is staffed by pathologists who are board-certified in anatomic and clinical pathology. SCH-CC’s Laboratory and Pathology departments are fully accredited by the College of American Pathologists.
