Laboratory and Pathology

The CHA lab provides a wide range of testing services - everything from from routine blood and urine tests to special tissue evaluation. We are certified by the AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) and CAP (College of American Pathology).

If You Need a Lab Test

Please ask your doctor or care team where to go for your test. You will also need a request for testing (order) from your healthcare provider. Tests cannot be performed without orders. 

Appointments in Primary Care 

If your Primary Care Provider (PCP) sent you for lab tests, please contact your regular primary care center to make an appointment.  

Appointments for Specialty Testing

If your CHA OB/GYN or Specialist sent you for lab tests, please call 617-665-2522 to make an appointment. 

Please note, the 617-665-2522 number is for CHA patients only. Patients from outside CHA should contact their doctor to find a testing site.

Test Results

Your lab test will be analyzed using state-of-the-art instruments and equipment. Results will be reviewed by medical doctors (Pathologists) with years of experience interpreting and diagnosing a broad range of conditions.

Your results will be released as soon as possible. If you have a CHA provider and use MyChart, you may be able to get results faster. Most lab results are released to your MyCHArt account about 72 hours after results are final. Radiology results are not available on MyCHArt.
