Lab Services (Empire Community Health Center)

Paul Oliver Laboratories have specimen collection facilities conveniently located throughout the Benzie region as part of Munson Outpatient Services in Interlochen, Benzonia, Frankfort, and Empire, in addition to the main laboratory at the hospital in Frankfort. The laboratories have evolved to incorporate highly-sophisticated diagnostic instrumentation and technology operated by highly-skilled, service-oriented employees who deliver timely and accurate results.

Off site service representatives are trained in phlebotomy and can collect laboratory specimens and perform INR testing at their locations. Specimens are sent to the hospital laboratory, where many tests are performed. Testing that is not performed at Paul Oliver is sent by courier twice a day to Munson Medical Center Laboratory in Traverse City. All of our laboratories are connected electronically so all results are maintained in your medical record. This ensures that your results will be available in a timely manner without the need to travel to Traverse City.
