San Joaquin General Hospital offers a range of diagnostic laboratory tests and services for chemistry, hematology, serology, pathology, microbiology and urinalysis. We are proud to support our local community healthcare partners in managing the care of their patients so that they may monitor lab results, detect disease earlier, make diagnoses and prescribe appropriate therapies.
San Joaquin General now offers quick, automated delivery of results to provider offices as instrument tests and laboratory reports are completed in our electronic medical record.

The two links below describe the specimen management procedures recommended by San Joaquin General Hospital. The General Laboratory guide covers blood bank, chemistry, hematology, serology, pathology and urinalysis and the Microbiology guide covers proper management of microbiology specimens. The effectiveness of a laboratory in the care of a patient relies upon a formal process of timely, accurate specimen management. This involves specimens that are appropriately selected, collected, labeled and transported to the laboratory. By following the procedures recommended in these guides, our healthcare partners help us meet these objectives.
If a particular test is desired and is not included in one of the guides, please refer to the “Send Outs to Reference Laboratory” section beginning on page 64 of the General Lab guide or call one of the following departments for specimen selection, collection and management requirements:
If you experience problems connecting to one of these lines, please notify the hospital operator at (209) 468-6000.
