CHOC Children’s Laboratory Services is one of the only dedicated pediatric labs in Southern California.
Conveniently located on the lower level of the Bill Holmes Tower, right off the elevator, the 20,000 square foot lab is dedicated to offering the most compassionate blood draw experience possible while providing physicians with quick, accurate results and around-the-clock service for our inpatients and children visiting our Emergency Department.
Understanding the needs of children
At CHOC Children’s, we specialize in providing children with the most pleasant experience possible—even when it comes to having blood drawn. All of our phlebotomists (people specially trained to draw blood) have at least two years of experience working with children before coming to CHOC and receive very special training upon being hired to work with our patients.
One visit, one poke
Our associates have a one visit, one poke goal for each and every patient they see. Whether they are drawing blood on a teenager or a wiggly toddler, they work with each patient and the patient’s family to try to only have to insert the needle one time.
State-of-the-art clinical laboratory
At CHOC Children’s, we pride ourselves on processing blood, urine and stool tests as quickly and efficiently as possible using the very latest equipment and expert staff. Physicians connected to our computer network are often able to get routine results within 60 minutes.
We are located on the lower level of the CHOC Children’s Bill Holmes Tower, just outside the elevators. After parking in the structure next to the hospital, patients must check in at the main reception area in the lobby of the hospital with the lab request from the child’s physician.
