Covenant Health is an innovative, Catholic regional delivery network and a leader in values based, not-for-profit health and elder care. We sponsor hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living residences and other health and elder care organizations throughout New England.

Laboratory Services

St. Joseph Hospital provides laboratory services for outpatients at four convenient locations. Walk-ins are welcome. Services include: phlebotomy, histology, blood bank, chemistry, hematology/urinalysis, coagulation, serology, and microbiology.

The hospital lab also tests samples obtained at our other laboratory locations and physician offices, as well as through visiting nurse agencies.

Medical Director Kelli Schneider, M.D. oversees the lab's policies, procedures, and clinical work. St. Joseph Hospital laboratory facilities are accredited by the College of American Pathologists' Accreditation and Laboratory Improvement Program (#1168101). Rigorous accreditation processes involve on-site reviews for quality control, staff qualifications, equipment, safety, and laboratory management to ensure outstanding service to our patients and clients.

Our Primary Reference Laboratory

St. Joseph Hospital Laboratory handles the vast majority of its testing, while utilizing Mayo Medical Laboratories for testing needs that require additional expertise. Mayo Medical Laboratories, the reference laboratory for Mayo Clinic, is a distinctive leader in the field of "esoteric" testing and offers consultations with its world-renowned physicians and scientists. This collaboration among physicians further strengthen our efforts to provide exception laboratory services and patient care to the region we serve.
