Our laboratory is accredited by CMS, staffed by medical laboratory technologists, and equipped to provide most diagnostic procedures. All tests require a clinician's order.

We are a proud recipient of the 2015 Laboratory Excellence Award. The award – presented by COLA, a national healthcare accreditation organization – signifies our commitment to providing accurate and reliable test results to OSU students.

The award is achieved by those laboratories found to be compliant with all COLA essential and required criteria at the time of their on-site accreditation survey, which is performed every two years. Accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy, and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey.


The staff consists of registered radiological technologists. A consulting radiologist (MD) interprets X-rays on a daily basis.

X-rays must be ordered by your clinician.
