Fast, Accurate Bloodwork
Outpatient lab services provide vital information to clinicians. The services, which include standard blood tests, influence the medical treatment patients receive by helping clinicians diagnose common and uncommon illnesses and conditions.
Virtua provides quick, convenient outpatient lab testing through multiple locations in South Jersey. Virtua outpatient labs in Camden, Gloucester and Burlington counties are staffed by phlebotomists who are specially trained to collect blood samples. Virtua's highly experienced team of technical staff analyzes tests and reports results to physicians in a timely and efficient manner. Physicians are able to provide the results to their patients with confidence.
The labs provide services, both routine and specialized, to the public and to long-term and specialty care facilities.
