Ozarks Medical Center is making it easier for patients to have their labwork completed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Curbside labs are now available at OMC’s surgical entrance on Kentucky Avenue in West Plains. For patients that are social distancing, this enables them to stay in their vehicle and only have contact with the phlebotomist.
This service is offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7 to 11 a.m. The patient must have lab orders from their provider or standing orders and their insurance card. No appointment is necessary.
For more information, contact OMC Laboratory Services at 417-257-6736.
Ozarks Medical Center is a system of care encompassing eight primary care and 17 specialty clinics, along with complete rehabilitation, behavioral healthcare and home care services. While the 114-bed acute care hospital cares for more than 5,400 admissions, the entire medical system has more than 364,000 patient visits annually in South Central Missouri and Northern Arkansas.
