Northwell Health Labs

About

As one of the largest laboratory systems in the country, Northwell Health Labs offers patients a wide variety of clinical testing procedures at our patient service centers conveniently located throughout New York City and Long Island. Our blood testing service centers draw samples of blood, urine, other bodily fluids or tissues to get information about a patient’s health. We recognize the importance of laboratory results in patient care. With professionally trained phlebotomists and friendly support staff, we provide competent service with accurate diagnostic results.

To serve our clients better, Northwell Health Labs offers a clinical laboratory service directory. This directory provides helpful information about the range of services and detailed information for all tests offered by our labs.

Blood draw

Blood tests are used to diagnose and monitor treatment for a variety of conditions. Northwell Health Labs makes getting blood drawn easy with services at all our Patient Service Centers. Before visiting one of our conveniently located locations for blood drawing:

  • Call your physician or the Northwell Health Labs location nearest you to determine if tests ordered will require fasting or special preparation.
  • Be sure to bring a copy of your physician’s test requisition or prescription along with your insurance information or card.
  • Appointments are only necessary for time-sensitive tests such as glucose tolerance and platelet aggregation.

Our experienced phlebotomists are also trained in pediatric care and will use calm and gentle techniques to make sure your child feels as comfortable as possible during a blood test. Download our "Parent’s Guide to Blood Draws" for some helpful tips for you and your child.

Your physician will receive a completed report from Northwell Health Labs when your test results become available.

If you do not have your insurance card, we will still draw your blood. However, you will have to follow-up by faxing a copy of your insurance information directly to our Billing Department at (516) 414-3825. We accept all major insurances. We also accept payment via cash, check or credit card.

Translation services are available in more than 180 languages. Ask the phlebotomist for assistance.

Laboratory results

Information empowers patients. That’s why we’ve made it easy to get your lab information, so you can get valuable insight into your personal health.

To receive a free copy of your recent lab test results, just download the Authorization for Release of Health Information form and send the completed form to the Laboratory Services Center. Lab results can receive results by phone, email, US mail, fax, or in person. Most tests take up to four days to complete, though some results may take longer.

Lab results can only be released to the patient or an authorized representative. Results are also available to some patients through FollowMyHealth, Northwell Health's patient portal; call (888) 670-9775 for questions/technical support.
