During the height of the COVID pandemic, Estes Park Health switched to walk-in appointments for minor tests like lab work and x-rays. As of April 29, 2024, EPH is returning to scheduled appointments.

“We want to streamline our processes and make the system as efficient for patients as possible,” said Serena Hennig, Patient Access Manager.

Booking these tests in advance will limit wait times. Appointments allow the staff to look ahead at the schedule and identify orders or questions prior to the patient’s arrival.

“Patients will receive the same great experience while meeting the needs of their safety and ensuring the utmost care,” EPH Laboratory Support Supervisor Amanda Donaldson explained.

The hours for scheduled testing will be from 7:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. weekdays.

The number to call to schedule appointments is (970) 577-4529.

EPH will still offer walk-in labs and x-rays for patients whose doctors request testing the same day as a visit.
