Lab Work/X-Rays/ Are Steps Away from Clinic

Posted on Friday, August 29th, 2014

Medical Clinic


Clinic patients don’t have to drive anywhere to obtain many of the diagnostic screenings or tests their physician orders. Across the lobby and into the hospital are facilities for laboratory testing, x-rays, CT scans, bone density scans, and ultrasounds.
Has your doctor recommended rehabilitation therapy? Around the corner in the Therapy Building are physical therapy, occupational therapy, and respiratory therapy.
The medical clinic and the hospital have the same owner – the people of Love County!
