Clinical Laboratory Department
Satanta District Hospital Laboratory has four full time certified Laboratory Technologists with a combined 45 ½ years experience in laboratory. The laboratory provides services to acute hospital patients, swing bed patients, outpatients and patients that came in the emergency room.
 A written order from a Physician, Physician’s Assistant or Nurse Practitioner is required for all laboratory tests and with corresponding diagnosis. All tests ordered by providers which cannot be performed in-house will be sent to Reference laboratory for testing.  In some tests before specimen are obtained, you may be required to abstain from eating or drinking for several hours prior to the test. Laboratory operations are overseen by a Laboratory Director and a consulting Pathologist.

For those written orders from out of state Physician, Physician’s Assistant or Nurse Practitioner needs to have a signature from one of our providers.
