PathWay Lab Services: Health Care Professionals


At Park Nicollet PathWay Medical Laboratories, we offer comprehensive laboratory services to medical professionals.

STAT lab tests

Our phlebotomists travel throughout the metro picking up specimens for processing. The Specimen Pickup Policy is as such: Anything faxed before 12pm is picked up the same day. Anything faxed after 12pm is picked up the next business day. It is best to collect specimens during routine AM draws. 

Our phlebotomists provide STAT services by arriving at your facility within two hours of your call and bringing the specimen directly back to the laboratory for testing. Results are completed and called to you as soon as tests are verified in our computer system. We guarantee a four-hour turnaround on all STAT orders.


Our phlebotomists visit all types of senior facilities, nursing homes and assisted living to perform doctor-ordered blood tests for your convenience. We will work with you and your team to develop a program of services to meet your medical lab needs. We also deliver specimen-collection supplies and forms to insure all facilities experience no interruption in their services. Routine lab days are assigned to each facility. We offer daily (Monday-Saturday) services to transitional care units.

Quality lab testing is done with quality lab equipment. We are proud to offer the newest equipment available today. We have a full test menu complete with specimen collection requirements, specimen transport, turnaround time (TAT), and testing information.
