Treatments & Services

York Hospital Laboratory Services perform thousands of tests to help your provider diagnose and treat conditions. To see a full list of the tests we provide, click this helpful link to a handbook of services available.


Test Result Information

About 95% of the lab tests collected at our lab are performed in-house and results are typically available within 24-48 hours. Once received, these results are automatically sent to your provider’s office. Copies of reports are also sent to any additional providers involved in your care as requested by you or your doctor. The remaining percentage of tests (about 5%) are referred to specialty laboratories for analysis. These tests often involve complex methodologies and may take up to 3-7 days to complete. Once the York Hospital Laboratory receives the results, reports are automatically forwarded to the ordering provider. We are happy to provide you a copy of your test results. Simply fill out a “Consent for Release of Confidential Health Information” form available at any of our locations. Once the York Hospital Laboratory completes all in-house testing and receives all send-out results, a copy of your lab report will then be sent to you, or you may visit any of our laboratory locations to receive a copy in person. If you wish to receive by mail, please allow 2-4 days for delivery. To protect the privacy of our patients, we are not able to provide results via e-mail or general fax at this time. What if I have questions about my test results? If you have questions about the interpretation of your test results, please understand that our laboratory staff are not permitted to, nor qualified to, interpret any lab results. Therefore, it is best for you to contact your ordering provider for an explanation on how these lab results may be used to care for you.

Provider Spotlight!

Dr. James Stuart, Surgery Associates of York Hospital, has been on staff here in York since January of 1974. While the “usual” background information regarding his education and medical training
is interesting to know, even more interesting is the institutional history and the anecdotal information that Dr. Stuart has stored up the sleeves of his white coat after more than four decades of being a provider and a caregiver at York Hospital! We would like to take this opportunity to share a bit of both types of information. Dr. Stuart received his BA from Albion College in Albion, Michigan, and his MD from | Wayne State University College of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. He completed a Rotating Internship at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine and a Residency in General Surgery, also at Maine Medical Center. Dr. Stuart is Certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow at the American College of Surgeons.

Back in the 1970s when Dr. Stuart joined York Hospital, there were no ambulances for the hospital. The local undertaker transported patients to the hospital in a vehicle similar to a modern hearse. When ambulances did start being used to transport patients to York Hospital, it was Dr. Stuart who trained the first EMTs riding on the ambulances. In 1974 there were 10 physicians total at York Hospital. If you stop Dr. Stuart in the hall today, he will still be able to tell you their names and what most of their work schedules were! On most Saturdays, the physicians would eat lunch in the cafeteria together – oftentimes with other employees or patients’ families. Another example of the kind of tight-knit community that defined York Hospital even back in the 1970s is that when Dr. Stuart performed surgeries, the assistant in the OR was typically the patient’s referring doctor, as opposed to another general surgeon or first assist.

These anecdotes illustrate that the philosophy of Loving Kindness has been an important aspect of how York Hospital has grown over the past four decades, and that Loving Kindness has guided Dr. Stuart as a physician, a caregiver and a colleague for more than 40 years. Kudos to Dr. Stuart—thank you for being an ambassador for York Hospital and a role model for all of us!
