Laboratory Services

Pershing Health System’s laboratory offers a wide range of testing to our emergency, inpatient, and out-patient service providers and to the patients they serve. The latest laboratory equipment is used at PHS such as the VITROS® 5600 Chemistry and Immunology Analyzer and the Sysmex XN 550 Hematology Analyzer allow the lab specialists to perform a wider spectrum of testing in-house rather than sending out to an off-site laboratory.
