To deliver on our promise to provide the most comprehensive services possible to our community, our laboratory was created in 1986. Offering full services, the lab performs 95% of testing in-house, including microbiology. Since its founding, it has been certified by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). Every two years the laboratory goes through an extensive survey to retain accreditation.

The Estes Park Health Laboratory is a member of the collaboratory US network of labs (formerly FrontLine Network). US is an alliance of hospital-based laboratories in Northern Colorado committed to providing customers with coordinated access to high-quality laboratory services. This alliance chose Mayo Medical Laboratories for those tests that are difficult to perform locally or are infrequently ordered. Mayo Medical Laboratories’ test menu complements that of our in-house service.

When outpatient laboratory services are needed outside normal business hours, please call the lab to make the necessary arrangements. In addition to the hundreds of tests that we do in-house, we also offer a limited menu of Direct Access Tests (DAT) at a deeply discounted price for patients who need to self-order a test not covered by insurance and pay for it at the time of service. Use the requisition and consent form below for DATs. Please call us at 970-586-5352 should you have questions.
