Lab Draws

The OHC staff  is happy to provide lab services covered by the Midwest Operating Engineers Welfare Fund.  If you are planning on coming in for a lab visit please be advised of the following:

  • All lab orders must be signed by a physician, along with their address, phone number and fax number
  • The lab paperwork must have the test name that your physician is requesting along with the corresponding diagnosis codes

It is required for either you or your physician to fax the lab order prior to scheduling a visit.  This will allow all orders to be reviewed by the OHC and make certain that the patient is scheduled for the lab draw at the correct time in case you have to either fast or take a timed test. Also, the OHC will only collect certain blood and only urine specimens (no fecal specimens). You or your physician can fax the requested order to the OHC at 708-352-0845.

Immediately following your lab draws the OHC staff will send a copy of your lab orders and the date that they were completed along with the other pertinent information to your ordering physician.  If the OHC is not your primary provider then it is the responsibility of your ordering physician to manage the results of your lab draws.

As a reminder, the OHC has designated times for lab draws as follows:

  • Tuesday 7am- 9am
  • Saturday 7am- 9am

If these times are not convenient, please contact the OHC at 708 485-2273 (CARE) for available lab draw appointments.
