About Us

Ohio Valley Hospital’s Laboratory offers both outpatient and inpatient testing services for people of all ages.

Our Laboratory works hard to provide your physicians and their medical staff with timely and accurate diagnostic test results through Clinical Pathology and Anatomic Pathology support. This is in order to prescribe a correct course of treatment for you, their patients. The Laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

We offer outpatient blood testing in two different locations. Their hours are listed below. Blood and Blood products are obtained from the Central Blood Bank of Pittsburgh to assure blood product safety, screening, and diagnostic reliability.

We accept most forms of insurance.


Health Check: A Low-Cost, Preventive Blood Screening

Our Health Check Blood Screening program is just $30.00.

The blood screening includes a CBC, CMP, an A1C, and a Lipid Profile to detect potential health risks, including anemia, diabetes, liver and kidney disease.


Fasting for 12-14 hours (water only) is suggested for accurate results.

You may register for our Health Check at our Outpatient Registration Desk, located on the 2nd floor of the Main Hospital.
