About Our Laboratory

Our laboratory is conveniently located on the first floor of Beth Israel Deaconess HealthCare-Chelsea. Members of our laboratory staff are bilingual to help accommodate the culturally diverse population we serve.

As soon as tests are completed, data/results are available for BIDMC and affiliated providers to review in our online medical record system. Your lab reports are printed daily by the phlebotomists on-site, and distributed to your physician, including physicians practicing outside of the BIDMC network.
