KHS Laboratory 308-235-1959

Our hospital laboratory has the capability to perform multiple tests in-house, including most chemistry panels, cardiac enzymes, blood gases, blood bank, coagulation, hematology, urinalysis, and limited microbiology. The department director Jennifer Greenwood, MT(ASCP) is assisted by several full-time medical technologists.

Laboratory professionals help to prevent disease by detecting unknown health problems and by aiding in the diagnosis and treatment of existing conditions by giving accurate and timely test results. Results of laboratory tests often identify the presence of disease in its earliest stages, when the possibilities of a cure are greatest and when treatment is least costly. Because of this early detection, it is important to have your blood checked even when you are in your 30s and 40s.
