Diagnostics and laboratory

Diagnostic and laboratory testing helps us identify health issues and further understand your condition. We may collect information from minor procedures, such as biopsies, or by performing blood tests and taking urine samples.

Attentive hospital laboratory services

We complete lab tests in settings that are safe and comfortable for you.

In Mission Health's labs, our technicians perform a variety of services that help your physician diagnose your condition or monitor your care. Serving Western North Carolina, our goal is to help you get a precise evaluation and effective, personalized treatment.
