The Dawson City Community Hospital lab performs a variety of routine, urgent and emergency tests that support your caregivers by helping to diagnose and determine the best course of treatment. All lab tests must be ordered by a physician.
Most outpatient lab appointments are scheduled between 8 am and 11 am, but individual circumstances may be accommodated. For emergency patients and inpatients, a combined lab/x-ray technologist is on-site from Monday – Friday 8 am to 4 pm.
The DCCH lab may also collect specimens for all other blood tests that need to be sent to the lab at Whitehorse General Hospital or to a facility outside the territory for processing.
