Our Lab is regulated by the Federal Government under CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act of 1988). We are inspected by COLA (Commission on Laboratory Accreditation) every 18-24 months. We are pleased to report that our last inspection, in November 2013, received zero deficiencies; and the Laboratory received a plaque in recognition for Laboratory excellence.

Our staff consists of:
Lab Director, Technical Consultant, Clinical Consultant-Dr. Joe Albert Mims(since 1994)
Lab Supervisor-Sunny Cuyco-Sifuentes (since 1995)
Lab Technician-Deborah Fort (since 1993)
We can save you time and travel expenses by providing Lab testing here at the hospital. Do not be bothered with lines and extensive wait times. We can perform Lab testing for any patient with a lab order from a physician. We only require a signed order including a diagnosis. Our local community members that go to physicians in San Angelo or surrounding regions can have their Lab tests performed here.
In-house test results are usually available on the same day the Lab is done. More esoteric tests are sent to our reference lab, Quest Diagnostics, located in Dallas, TX. Generally those results are back within 24-72 hours depending on complexity.
