Community Memorial Outreach Lab Program within Ventura County

“The Community Memorial Outreach Lab Program provides convenient mobile lab services to various skilled nursing and assisted living facilities throughout Ventura County,” said Megan O’Neill, Business Development Manager at Community Memorial Healthcare. “This program is more than 10 years old and we are the only health system in Ventura County to offer this service. This community-based program enhances the continuum of care as patients discharge from the hospital to assisted living and skilled nursing facilities.”

According to O’Neill, lab results are securely shared with the ordering physician and the facility where the patient resides. “STAT lab services are also available and results are provided within 4 hours from the time of the lab draw. This is helpful when a patient is very sick and the physician needs to determine the next step in medical care,” said O’Neill. Complete lab results for patient review are also available through Community Memorial Healthcare’s patient portal.

  • Glenwood Care Center
  • Camarillo Healthcare Center
  • Victoria Care Center
  • Ventura Post Acute
  • Coastalview Healthcare Center
  • Maywood Health Care Center
