Where can I get my child’s blood drawn?
Our pediatric draw site is located in the patient registration area at Kalispell Regional Medical Center. A patient that is younger than 18 years of age must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

How quickly can I get lab results?
The laboratory processes specimens 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Some lab tests may take longer to perform than others. Please consult with your provider on how quickly you should expect to receive your lab results.

Do I need to schedule an appointment for lab work?
All draw sites are on a walk-in basis unless otherwise instructed by your provider. Some tests do require an appointment (glucose tolerance, sweat chloride, platelet aggregation, etc.). These types of tests will need to be coordinated with your provider’s office and the draw site.

What does a patient need to do if they need to drop off a specimen?
Any specimen can be dropped off at the patient registration draw site from 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. For any after-hours drop offs, please contact the laboratory to specify an arrival time. All semen washes must be delivered directly to the lab.

What if I have questions about fasting and the tests that have been ordered?
All questions concerning fasting and tests that have been ordered should be directed to your provider or your provider’s clinical staff.
