Laboratory Services

Mission Hospital Laboratory offers the latest advancements in technology and instrumentation at both our Mission Viejo and Laguna Beach campuses. Licensed clinical laboratory scientists perform tests under the direction of each laboratory’s board-certified pathologists and Medical Directors. Our state-of-the-art laboratories ensure the highest standards of testing, and are licensed by the State of California and accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).

Mission Hospital Laboratory maintains an FDA registered Blood Bank, which is accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks. Therapeutic phlebotomies are performed by appointment only and require a physician order.

The Laboratory holds a California State Tissue license and maintains a large supply of homologous as well as autologous tissue for use by our physicians.

Our phlebotomy staff is certified and highly experienced with specialized training in drawing blood specimens from children and infants. Because our laboratories operate 24/7, most testing is performed daily with results available to your doctor within 24 hours.
