Hannibal Regional Hospital's full-service Clinical Laboratory performs over 350,000 tests every year. We operate 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. Patient specimens are not delayed by extensive transport time, since the majority of tests are performed at Hannibal Regional Hospital.
For specialized tests, Hannibal Regional Hospital works with Mayo Clinic Laboratories - a state-of-the-art lab renowned for quality and excellence - as our reference laboratory. Results from our reference lab are received electronically, incorporated into our laboratory information system and reported promptly to the patient's physician.
Serving Inpatient and Outpatients
Our laboratory supports the clinical testing needs for Hannibal Regional Hospital patients during inpatient stays and outpatient testing for the entire community. For the convenience of our patients, Hannibal Regional Hospital’s couriers pick up specimens daily from physicians' offices and nursing facilities throughout the area and deliver them to our laboratory for testing.
Hannibal Regional Hospital Laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
The College of American Pathologists, the leading organization of board-certified pathologists, serves patients, pathologists and the public by fostering and advocating excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine.
