The Mason District Hospital Laboratory staff performs many of the laboratory tests on site. However, if the lab is unable to perform a particular test, the test may be performed off site in one of our accredited reference laboratories. We know timely results significantly impact patient treatment, so we place laboratory results in the hands of health care providers as quickly as possible. We never forget that our services are often the foundation of the physician’s diagnosis and treatment.
