Lab - Women


The pathology lab at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital for Women offers anatomic and clinical pathology, using the most advanced medical technology in southwest Louisiana. Our lab is fully accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB). Services are provided under the medical direction of a Board certified pathologist and our lab is staffed with certified Clinical Laboratory Scientists.

Our women's campus pathology services include:

Bacteriology

  • Bacteriology isolates and identifies pathogenic bacteria that cause human disease by using rich, selective and differential culture media.

Blood Gases

  • Blood Gases measure the acidity (pH) and the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood from an artery to check how well your lungs are able to move oxygen into the blood and remove carbon dioxide from the blood.

Body Fluids

  • Body Fluid Analysis is performed on many types of fluids from the body other than blood. Often, these fluids are tested instead of blood because they can give more direct answers to what may be going on in a particular part of the body.
    • Urinalysis
    • Semen Analysis
    • Sweat Chloride
    • Fetal Fibronectin (fFN)  
    • Perotineal Fluid Analysis

Cytology

  • Cytology is the examination of cells from the body under the microscope to identify the signs and characteristics of disease

Hematology

  • Hematology focuses on the examination of blood disorders and malignancies.


Pathology services are available on both Memorial campuses, 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
