Our Laboratory is equipped with "gold star" Beckman-Coulter analyzers that are built to deliver maximum productivity. These analyzers deliver fast, accurate results with maximum efficiency. Our broad menu of tests provides the tools and answers physicians need to aid in the diagnosis and management of a variety of diseases; every test procedure is a small part of a bigger picture. The Laboratory is based within HRMC; therefore, the lab staff is able to work directly with the medical staff and provide immediate results.
The Laboratory at HRMC is Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) approved; it is also licensed by the Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendment (CLIA) and accredited by COLA.
Over 97% of our test volume is performed in-house and most tests are completed that same day. The Laboratory staff will fax results to the physician who ordered the test as soon as they are available; hard copies are available through medical records. Laboratory services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For questions regarding laboratory services, please call (803)943-1273 or fax (803)943-1270.
