Laboratory Services

When you visit OU Health for any health condition, your doctor may want you to get bloodwork or another test for more information before starting treatment. At OU Health in Oklahoma City and Edmond, you’ll find laboratory services nearby any time – 24 hours a day, seven days a week – where you and your whole family can easily get your lab work done accurately and completely.

Get Your Results Fast

Count on getting your results quickly and accurately. As an academic health system, OU Health medical professionals on staff from OU Health Physicians’ Pathology Department read most of your test results on site instead of sending them away for review, which saves time.
