Lab Work

**Currently we are only collecting bloodwork at our Homewood clinic location.**

As a courtesy to our students, the Homewood primary care clinic draws blood for lab tests ordered by non-SHWB providers. However, for the safety of our students and to make sure that results are promptly transmitted to the ordering clinician, we have adopted this blood drawing policy as of February 1, 2012.

Lab Work Requested by an Outside Provider

Lab order slips from outside providers must be on that provider’s own Quest, or Universal Lab slip. The requisition must be completely filled out including:

  • Name of the clinician ordering the lab work
  • Contact information (address & phone/fax number)
  • Quest account number
  • Relevant ICD-10
  • Lab tests requested

For the safety of our students, blood tests ordered by outside clinicians are only collected on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. The laboratory results will be sent from the laboratory directly to the outside (ordering) clinician. SHWB will not receive a copy of any lab results.

There is no extra blood-drawing fee.

If you have been referred outside of SHWB to a specialist or facility, we feel it is in your best interest to have the lab work done at the specialist’s office, so that your results will go directly to your specialist and reach them in a timely fashion.
