Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: If I need fasting labs, how long do I need to fast?
A: If fasting labs have been ordered, please do not eat or drink anything except for water for 12 to 16 hours prior to presenting for your lab draw.
Q: Do I have to make an appointment to come and have my labwork drawn?
A: No! Feel free to stop by for your lab draw anytime during business hours, Monday - Friday, 8am to 5pm, Saturday 8am to noon. If you can't make it in that time frame, call CCH at 402.376.2525 and ask for the Laboratory Department. They will be happy to schedule a time with you.
Q: How long does it take to get my lab results?
A: If your lab tests are run at CCH, your results will be available that same day. If they are sent to Pathology Services, it will take a few days depending on the requested tests. If you need to be informed about your results, ask the Laboratory staff to contact you when your results are complete.
