Diagnostic Services at Children’s Hospital New Orleans

Pediatric laboratory medicine is unique because children are not just tinier versions of adults. Rather, pediatric medicine is impacted by factors like child development, nutrition, growth, and diseases that can occur during different periods of their youth. Pediatric lab testing offers many opportunities for improved patient care. The Pediatric Clinical Laboratory at Children’s Hospital New Orleans provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient clinical and anatomic laboratory services for children. The staff includes medical technologists oriented towards the unique needs of a pediatric population. Phlebotomists have special expertise in drawing blood from child patients, and our pathologists are certified in anatomic, clinical and pediatric pathology.
