Lab Orders

For the convenience of our patients, we offer walk-in appointments for most lab orders. However, we see a high number of patients throughout the morning. For this reason, walk-ins are discouraged before noon.

If you have an order from a physician outside of Cancer & Hematology Centers of Western Michigan, our lab personnel would be happy to draw these tests as well. Please give your order to the receptionist at the front desk when you arrive.

Central Venous Catheters

If you have a central venous catheter (i.e. Port-a-cath, Hickman catheter or a PICC line) and would like your blood tests drawn from this catheter, please make arrangements with your nurse ahead of time. This typically means scheduling an appointment with her/him prior to your visit with the physician. If you are seeing a nurse for treatment, this blood draw can often be incorporated into that visit.

Latex Allergy

If you have a latex allergy, please inform the lab personnel when you arrive so that your care team knows to use latex-free gloves and tourniquets.
