Direct Access Lab Testing

Ortonville Hospital Lab department offers the public an opportunity for lab tests performed through the Direct Access Testing program.

  • The program allows patients to order their own tests
  • Services are available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on regular business days and Saturdays from 8 to10 a.m.
  • Payment is required by cash or check. OAHS will not bill Medicare or insurances. Direct Access Testing is performed for patient’s convenience at a significant reduction in price because it is done on a cash for service basis only.
  • Lab test results will be mailed directly to the patient, not the patient’s physician. Patients are encouraged to share the results with their healthcare provider.
  • If results are critical, we will attempt to notify you as soon as possible using the telephone number that you provided. You should notify your physician immediately.

Effective January 1, 2019, the Urinalysis test is being removed from the OAHS Direct Access Testing menu in order to assure that the most appropriate and timely follow-up for a possible urinary tract infection can be completed.   The health of our patients is our priority.  Individuals who are under age 18  can have a urinalysis performed during a provider visit. Adults 18 years and older can have a urinalysis performed during a nurse visit.  Provider and Nurse visits can be scheduled by calling 320-839-6157.
