We are pleased to present this edition of our
web based Henry Ford Health System Laboratory User’s
Guide. The purpose of this guide is to provide an alphabetical
listing and pertinent information about tests performed
in our laboratories and to provide answers to the most
frequently asked questions.
Test results are immediately posted to the Henry Ford Health System electronic medical record. Results and test status may also be queried by calling our Laboratory Customer Service Center at (313) 916-LABS (5227).
As you open our pages, you will find information on the Laboratory Customer Service Center, Pathology Senior Staff and leadership, contact information, and information on the Henry Ford Medical Center laboratories. In addition, comprehensive information on specimen collection, identification, acceptability, verbal orders, reflex testing, billing, result availability, and critical value notification is provided for your convenience. We value your suggestions and look forward to working with you.
