Roseburg, Ore. – Oregon Medical Laboratories (OML), the state’s largest medical laboratory, announces the opening of its new patient service center located at 2510  Edenbower Ave. Suite 146  Roseburg, Ore. OML’s highly skilled phlebotomists are experts in providing gentle care and fast service with little to no wait times.

Based in Eugene/Springfield, OML has served the Roseburg community by providing laboratory services through Mercy Medical Center since 1986. The new patient service center, conveniently located near physician offices and Mercy Medical Center, marks OML’s first patient care site in Roseburg. OML has 10 other patient service centers in Western Oregon, including Cottage Grove, Florence and Portland.

"Choice in medical services is increasing and we are pleased to offer Roseburg physicians and patients access to Oregon''s leading laboratory," said Ran Whitehead, CEO of OML. “We offer faster service and faster results than labs based outside of Oregon.”

Test results can be immediately delivered to physician offices electronically, improving accuracy and efficiency. OML is unique among area laboratories in that it is the only lab to accept all major insurances, including Providence Health Plan, United Healthcare, Aetna, CIGNA ODS and more.

The center also provides free nutritious snacks for patients and is open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Phone is 672-1650.
