Dear valued laboratory customer,

As of March 18, 2024, the Providence outpatient labs at 2200 Harrison Ave, Eureka
and 3300 Renner Dr., Fortuna that serve St. Joseph Hospital, Eureka and Redwood
Memorial Hospital will discontinue laboratory outpatient specimen collection. However,
certain specialized laboratory services will not be impacted, including:

  • STAT (urgent) laboratory testing for oncology patients
  • Orders from Providence Infusion Center and oncology providers
  • Transfusion services
  • Pre-surgical testing within 72 hours of admission to St. Joseph Hospital, Eureka or Redwood Memorial Hospital.

How will I schedule an appointment at the lab where I am referred?
Your primary care physician will refer you to a lab and submit the order directly to the lab or provide you with paperwork to bring with you. You can then go to the lab’s website to schedule an appointment or do a walk-in if the lab provides this option. For your convenience, here is the website for a major provider of lab services in this community, where you can schedule an appointment and access more information about their services and locations:

How will I get my lab results?
If your physician has submitted your laboratory orders electronically, your results should appear in your MyChart account. All other patients should check with their physician regarding their lab results.

We will help you during this transition.
If you have questions, you can ask your physician or one of our laboratory caregivers. In addition, a call-in number--707-269-4286---will be active starting March 18, where members of the community can get questions answered.
