Our three convenient locations are staffed by highly-skilled and experienced, licensed phlebotomists and clinical laboratory scientists. We often receive comments from patients praising the friendly and painless experience from blood draws and other clinical lab tests performed by our expert staff.
At Marshall 98% of our lab tests are processed internally, and we use ARUP Laboratories for rare and unique tests. ARUP processes 20,000+ specimens per day for clients across the country. Over 65 academic medical centers also use ARUP as their primary reference lab.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, Marshall Hospital in Placerville will refer walk-in patients for routine lab work to their outpatient locations.
Marshall announced the hospital location will continue to provide vital laboratory services to emergency room, intensive care unit, inpatients and outpatients with orders for urgently needed lab testing. Walk-in patients for routine lab work will be directed to seek services at any of Marshall’s outpatient labs in Placerville, Cameron Park and Georgetown.
Patient safety is the biggest reason for the change, according to Marshall Lab Director Joe Jacobs. “Elderly patients and those with mobility challenges have difficulty walking from the registration department to the laboratory’s location upstairs. This raised concerns for us”, he said.
“At our midtown Placerville and Cameron Park locations, they have registration and lab services in the same location. They are fully staffed and cater specifically to outpatients,” he said.
Marshall Labs are fully accredited by the College of American Pathologists.
