Lab Testing & Pathology

Daily courier service to OSF St. Francis Hospital in Peoria and SwedishAmerican Hospital in Rockford makes referred Lab testing and Pathology specimen testing possible. In the event a referred test is ordered STAT, it is immediately transported to the reference lab by our maintenance department. A Pathologist from Northern Illinois Pathology makes a monthly or as-needed visit to provide professional consultation. Frozen sections can be performed Monday through Friday with 24-hour notice. EKGs are read with an immediate computer readout. Over-reads on EKGs are performed by Dr. Pitamber Persaud, OSF HealthCare Cardiovascular Institute or IL Pediatric Cardiology group.
