EACH works to improve laboratory wait times

By Jeanine Mezei | Medical Department Activity-Fort Carson Public Affairs Office

Patients visiting the laboratory at Evans Army Community Hospital (EACH) may have experienced increased wait times due to a recent staffing shortage.

With this in mind, EACH recommends patients visit the laboratory for services during the late afternoon for a shorter wait time.

The laboratory is open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but trends show fewer patients visit from 2-4:30 p.m. This time period shows significantly decreased wait times.

Also, Monday and Tuesday tend to be the busiest days of the week for patients visiting the laboratory.

EACH understands each patient’s time is important and the hospital staff is working diligently to shorten patient wait times in the laboratory.
