About Our Chestnut Hill Lab


At Beth Israel Deaconess HealthCare-Chestnut Hill, certified phlebotomists draw blood and collect specimens. We process some blood tests and specimens on site, and send others to our clinical laboratory at BIDMC in Boston.

Hours

Our Lab hours are 7:30 am to 9:00 pm Monday through Friday and 9:00 am to 7:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays (and minor holidays).

If you have any questions, please call 617-278-8680.

Please Note: With respect to social distancing, we are requiring patients to self-schedule an appointment by clicking the “Reserve a Spot” link below.

Doctor's Orders Required

You will need a signed order from your doctor before we can draw blood or collect specimens. Physician offices order lab work using BIDMC's web-based order entry system. You can also bring the physician's paper requisitions to the lab with you or orders can be faxed to 617-278-8685.

Paper requisitions must

  • Be legible
  • Include the patient's name and date of birth
  • Include the ordering provider's name and phone number
  • Include the provider’s signature
  • Include an ICD-10 code (diagnosis code)
  • List all tests individually

If we find that your physician is not in our web-based system, we will need a day to process your paperwork before we can perform your lab work.

Lab Results

Once the tests are complete, your doctor can review the results in our online medical record system. If you are a member of PatientSite, you may also be able to review your results. If you have questions about your test results, call your physician's office.
