This is one of the most important departments in the hospital. The Lab is responsible for conducting the many tests your physician will order. The information obtained from these tests is most valuable to your physician in prescribing the treatment you receive.
The Laboratory at Knox County Hospital is inspected and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) once every two years. The Lab offers a complete range of diagnostic testing, most of which is performed on site with Sate of the art instruments.
Our Laboratory is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week (including holidays) with highly – trained Medical technologists, Medical Laboratory Technician’s and phlebotomists. The Laboratory department is under the direct supervision of a certified pathologist.
