CHI St. Alexius Health Medical Plaza – Mandan provides testing support for both the physician at the clinic and patients who choose to stay closer to home for laboratory tests. The laboratory is staffed by North Dakota licensed laboratorians.
The laboratory includes a specimen collection area and a separate testing department. Laboratory tests check a specimen of blood and/or urine. These test samples are analyzed to see if a patient’s results fall within the normal range.
Laboratory tests often are part of a routine checkup to look for changes in a patient’s health. The physician can compare laboratory results from a previous visit. Laboratory tests also help physicians diagnose medical conditions, plan or evaluate treatments and monitor diseases. The CHI St. Alexius Health Medical Plaza – Mandan laboratory provides many of the tests that are routinely ordered. The clinic lab also performs quick tests for pregnancy, influenza, strep and mononucleosis.
