Detect, Diagnose, Treat
JRMC’s Laboratory testing plays a crucial role in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease in patients. Laboratory tests help determine the presence or absence of disease and monitor the effectiveness of treatment. It is estimated that 80% of all diagnosis and treatments are based on laboratory testing. Many of the results from the JRMC Lab are the same day; some tests take as little as 30 minutes from the time your blood is drawn to the time your physician has the results.
The JRMC Laboratory is open 24 hours a day, 7 days.
Laboratory services include chemistry, hematology, microbiology, blood banking and urinalysis. JRMC Lab is also proud to offer direct access testing for many common screenings.
Direct Access Tests
Direct Access Testing is offered at JRMC to assist people in monitoring ongoing health risks or to assess potential health risks.
The tests that are performed through direct access testing may identify certain discrete health indicators and are in no way a substitute for a regular and thorough physical exam performed by a physician.
Patients must be 18 years of age or older to order direct access testing. Tests may be ordered directly through admissions at JRMC where patients will complete an order form and a self-addressed envelope. Payment is required at the point of completing the order.

We are staffed by Medical Laboratory Scientists, also known as Medical Technologists. They have a baccalaureate degree in clinical laboratory science or medical technology, are licensed by the state of North Dakota and a national accrediting body.
Our phlebotomists have either completed a formal education program, usually six months, or have been trained on the job. A phlebotomist is specifically trained to collect blood from a patient for laboratory analysis.
