Laboratory Services

When you need lab work done, count on Community Hospital.

Whether you're an outpatient, inpatient, or facing an emergency, a local lab can guarantee quick, accurate results. And because we store those results electronically, they're readily available when your doctor needs them.

Community Hospital of Monterey Peninsula means...

Reliable results


CLIA-certified and accredited by JCAHO and CAP

A professional team

We have a staff of more than 100, which includes:

Local pathologists

Our three, board-certified pathologists are ready to help you and your medical team interpret your test results.

A nonprofit, local hospital

When you use our lab, you're helping your community. You have a choice on how you spend your dollar. Spending with Community Hospital in turn supports other community-based programs through hospital services, including cancer and diabetes support, childbirth classes, fitness/well-being, and health management.

Additional testing

Our primary reference laboratory is Quest Diagnostics - Nichols Institute. It offers more than 2,000 tests and test combinations, ranging from routine screening to highly complex tests.

Convenient hours

24-hour availability (testing only)

Because we're a hospital lab, we provide testing 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for our inpatients and emergency department. And test results are kept electronically. So when you use Community Hospital for your laboratory testing needs, your results will be available if you need additional care at the hospital. 
Note: collection is not available 24-hours a day; see below for lab locations and hours.

House calls

In specified areas, when a patient is certified as homebound and there is a medical necessity, a California state-certified laboratory phlebotomist will go to the patient's home to collect a specimen. These services are available Monday-Friday (except holidays), from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
