Laboratory

Our Lab

Kiowa District Hospital Laboratory is a CLIA certified Hospital Laboratory with state of the art equipment and a wide testing menu.  We are very proud of the KDH lab and its crew as they have run a deficiency free lab for the past 13 years. The Laboratory aids the Physician in the diagnosis and treatment of disease by providing accurate and precise clinical information.  It is our job to ensure the quality of the test results, explain the significance of laboratory tests and evaluate new methods and study the effectiveness of these tests.
