Day Kimball Healthcare provides top quality laboratory and blood draw services at four convenient locations across Northeast Connecticut. Our lab services are accredited by The Joint Commission, the College of American Pathologists, and the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
Our laboratory at Day Kimball Hospital is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and processes all laboratory tests from across our system - over half a million tests per year. And our blood draw locations at the Day Kimball Healthcare Centers in Danielson, Putnam and Plainfield also offer experienced phlebotomists and convenient access to the full range of testing offered at our Hospital.
A physician or practitioner’s order is required for all testing. No appointment is necessary; all tests are performed on a walk-in basis. However, be sure to follow any special pre-testing instructions provided by your doctor, such as fasting or taking medication a certain number of hours before your test.
The laboratory provides 24/7 laboratory testing to our hospital inpatients and Emergency Department.
Outpatient blood draw services are provided at the locations and hours listed below. All locations are closed for outpatient services on the following observed holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
Mon - Fri, 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
(closed from 11:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon daily for lunch)
Our board-certified associated physicians from a contracted service provide exceptional diagnostic and interpretive services, with sub-specialties including hematopathology, molecular pathology, surgical pathology, gastrointestinal pathology, cytopathology, gynecologic pathology, transfusion medicine, and more.
No matter which of our service locations you visit for your labwork, our integrated system means that your care team will have access to your test results as soon as they’re available, through our electronic medical records (EMR) system. This results in a shorter wait time for you to receive results, and also helps to eliminate errors and redundant services, so you can better control your health care costs.
Please check with your insurance carrier for details about your specific coverage, copays, deductibles and any prior authorization requirements. You will receive a bill from Day Kimball Hospital for the lab testing portion of your service, and a bill from either University Pathologists or another associated pathology provider for the professional test interpretation portion. If you have questions about your Day Kimball Hospital bill or need help paying for care, please contact our team of financial counselors. For more information, visit our billing page.
