ECMH Laboratory

The modern technology available in the Laboratory Department allows the professional staff to assist physicians by performing a variety of diagnostic testing. This diagnostic testing provides valuable information which is essential in providing quality care. In an effort to promote preventative health care the El Campo Memorial Hospital lab provides quarterly health screenings to the public at reduced rates.

Our main goal is to be the laboratory of choice for our patients and physicians in Wharton County and the surrounding area.

Our professional staff provide a full service lab available 24/7. The ECMH lab features some of the industry's newest and most advanced technology including: Blood Bank, Hematology, Chemistry, Special Chemistry, Microbiology, Serology, Blood Gas and Urinalysis.

The ECMH Lab also performs Drug of Abuse Testing. We offer pathology testing services through Baylor College of Medicine. Our in-house testing includes a wide range of both routine and specialized test appropriate for our hospital.

Quality Assurance

The ECMH Lab is accredited by CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment). All test results are monitored for reliability, precision, and accuracy through both internal and external quality control programs, by registered MTs and MLTs. Our Laboratory Assistants are trained to obtain specimens with as little stress as possible to our patients.
