Lab Work

As a courtesy to our students, the Student Health and Wellness Center draws blood for lab tests ordered by non-SHWC providers. However, for the safety of our students and to make sure that results are promptly transmitted to the ordering clinician, we have adopted this blood drawing policy as of February 1, 2012.

Lab Work Requested by an Outside Provider

Lab order slips from outside providers must be on that provider’s own Quest, or Universal Lab slip. The requisition must be completely filled out including:

  • Name of the clinician ordering the lab work
  • Contact information (address & phone/fax number)
  • Quest account number
  • Relevant ICD-10
  • Lab tests requested

For the safety of our students, blood tests ordered by outside clinicians are only collected on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. The laboratory results will be sent from the laboratory directly to the outside (ordering) clinician. The SHWC will not receive a copy of any lab results.

If this is not possible, you will be referred to the Calvert Outreach Laboratory:

Calvert Outreach Lab at Union Memorial Hospital
Johnston Professional Building (corner of 33rd St. & N. Calvert)
3333 N. Calvert Street, Suite 121
Baltimore, MD 21218
Hours: Monday – Friday – 6:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

There is no extra blood-drawing fee. Students with JHU’s school insurance should have their provider use Quest or Johns Hopkins Laboratories.

If you have been referred outside of the SHWC to a specialist or facility, we feel it is in your best interest to have the lab work done at the specialist’s office, so that your results will go directly to your specialist and reach him/her in a timely fashion.

Students with the JHU WellFleet school insurance who have been issued a referral to an outside provider by a SHWC clinician should have their outside provider use Quest or any Johns Hopkins Laboratories that bills under the JH Tax ID# to ensure you stay within the Cigna PPO network.

Please see our after-hours care page for instructions on what to do when the SHWC is closed.
