Atlantic General Hospital is offering outpatient laboratory services, including walk-ins for routine bloodwork, on its campus once again as of June 8.

The announcement comes with a move to a new location, which will allow the organization to utilize the current laboratory space for other services that must remain within the main hospital.

The Atlantic General Outpatient Center will be located in the James G. Barrett Medical Office Building, situated at the entrance of Healthway Drive in Berlin. The center will be open from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 7 a.m. to noon Saturdays.

Laboratory testing and electrocardiograms are offered, with additional services coming soon. No testing for COVID-19 will be provided at this location.

Although no appointment is necessary for lab work, officials ask for the public’s understanding with any potential delays caused by social distancing requirements. In addition to maintaining distance from others, patients are asked to wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth when entering the facility.

“We look forward to opening the Atlantic General Outpatient Center to our community in June,” said Kim Justice, vice president of planning and operations. “We thank you in advance for your patience as we observe proper social distancing and disinfecting protocols to protect the health of patients and staff alike.”
