Catalina Island Medical Center’s laboratory department serves patients of all ages in the Emergency Department, Medical Group Office, Inpatient and Outpatient areas. If you have a doctor over town, we do accept laboratory orders from doctors who are not on the island. Timely and accurate results will be sent to the referring doctor.
• staffed 24/7 by a Clinical Lab Scientist (CLS) professional
•collects, processes and analyzes the biological specimens
• processes 80% of laboratory specimens in-house, which resulted in faster turn-around
When questions arise about the reason for tests, possible cost of services or the alternatives to any particular laboratory analysis, CIMC recommends patients phone their primary care physician.
