Comprehensive laboratory services are available at the Health Center. Some basic laboratory testing, including blood sugar, hemoglobin, rapid strep, rapid mono, rapid flu, urinalysis and urine pregnancy tests can be done on site. Most other laboratory tests are collected at the Health Center and securely delivered to Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital. These labs have a short turnaround time for results.
Some students may need lab work as ordered by their hometown physician. If so, arrangements can be made to have the samples collected at the Birkam Health Center or Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital with the results being sent to the ordering physician.
