Referring Physicians

We provide comprehensive laboratory services directly to patients in Connecticut and we also provide reference laboratory services to hospitals, large practices and institutions from much of New England and, for highly specialized services, across North America. Samples can be sent to our laboratories from anywhere across the country. However, blood drawing itself can only be done at a Yale New Haven Hospital facility. Click Blood Drawing Locations for a list of locations and times.

Our stat laboratory facility at the Shoreline Medical Center in Guilford allows patients to have blood drawn for test results with rapid turnaround—results can be called in and/or faxed as needed.

Test Results

Your patient's test results are available by faxing, mail and/or courier hardcopy delivery as well as through system-wide web-based electronic access including Epic Hyperspace and Epic CareLink.

All test results (inpatient and outpatient, regardless of which of our facilities they are performed at) are integrated into the online electronic health record and with all inpatient results.

Feedback

We welcome inquiries from your office regarding our services, establishment of drop-boxes ('milk boxes') for sample pick-up at your office by our couriers, help with getting onto Epic, and phone consultations with our clinical pathologists regarding interpretation of tests performed by our laboratory on your patients. Please contact our Outreach Marketing Coordinator for assistance.

You can reach our Clinical Administrative Office by calling 203 688-2450.
