Standing Orders

Outpatient laboratory draws and sample drop-off will take place Mon-Fri, 6 a.m.-6 p.m., at our Rapid Access location on the first floor of the Medical Arts Center (100 E. Jackson Ave). Exceptions will be made for patients already at the hospital site for another exam or procedure.

Our laboratory would be happy to set up a standing order from your physician for re-occurring labs. Standing orders are valid for 1 year, after which time we will need a new test requisition. 

Standing orders can be faxed directly to our lab at 509.933.8795.

Standing orders should include

  • Patient name
  • Ordering caregiver
  • Test(s)
  • Interval between testing
  • ICD-9 diagnosis code
  • Physician phone number
  • Fax number for results
