McLaren Offers In-home Laboratory Services

Home lab draws add convenience, access to homebound patients


Lansing, Mich. — McLaren Greater Lansing is expanding laboratory services to offer convenience and relief in the greater Lansing area by providing eligible patients in-home lab draws.

“Home lab draws are an invaluable benefit to patients who have difficulty leaving their home,” said Ronald Cosson, administrator of clinical support services at McLaren Greater Lansing. “Eligible patients may be elderly, have recently undergone surgery, or are just generally unable to travel. Whatever their circumstance, we’re proud to perform the physician’s lab orders in the comfort of their own home.”

McLaren Greater Lansing’s in-home laboratory visits are performed by a compassionate, certified phlebotomist experienced in providing a variety of laboratory services, including blood draws.

Homebound patients who require laboratory services can request an in-home lab draw from their primary care provider. The patient is then referred to McLaren laboratory services, who in turn contact the patient to schedule an appointment.

Appointments are made Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and generally scheduled within 1-2 business days.
