Multiphasic (Community) Testing is provided throughout the year
The KCH Lab conducts a series of multiphasic blood screenings in partnership with Rotary Clubs in the communities KCH serves. These screenings provide area residents with a low cost way to monitor a chronic illness such as diabetes or high cholesterol, a baseline, or a regular check on heart, thyroid, kidney functioning, for example and help keep our communities healthy and informed.
A physician must order all laboratory testing. Contact your physician to discuss your lab testing needs. For laboratory related questions, please call (814) 837-4570.
