St. Vincent Health

Looking toward the future, St. Vincent General Hospital District has embraced the concept of a health campus where specialists, primary care, Lake County Public Health Agency, and other health-related offices reside in the old hospital building and synergistically complement services in the adjacent, new hospital facility.

Get your DAT tests STAT at SVH!

Like you, your friends at St. Vincent Health have historically looked forward to the annual 9 Health Fair. The event, which routinely occurred in April, will not take place again this year. We enthusiastically anticipate 2022, when hopefully, it will be back.

If you were one of dozens of people in Lake County who got their annual blood profile and other health screenings at the fair, we have some good news. The St. Vincent Lab offers Direct Access Testing (DAT), which means lab tests can be ordered and accessed by you, without a provider’s order, similar to the health fair.

Lab tests are a vital part of your medical care. They give detailed, objective data about your health that gives you the ability to manage and prevent diabetes, hypertension and many more conditions and diseases. Our goal is to improve the health of our community by providing timely, accurate, and cost-effective testing services.

DAT is also known by other names including consumer ordered tests, patient-directed testing, direct access to lab services and others. It is characterized by the individual paying up-front and out-of-pocket for the service. Colorado is one of 37 states in the nation in which DAT testing is available.

This option for DAT lab tests is simple, confidential, inexpensive, and offers patients the ability to be in charge of their health and disease prevention. Results are private and mailed directly to you. You keep them or share them with your medical provider; it’s up to you! Learn more about DAT and local options here.
