Fauquier Health offers a wide variety of diagnostic services on an outpatient basis. These include Cardiopulmonary and Vascular Services like EEG, EKG and EMG, as well as endoscopy, echo vascular studies and pre-operative testing. Complete laboratory and imaging services are also available.
The Outpatient Special Procedures Department offers the latest advances in medical and surgical "same day" procedures, including lithotripsy for patients with kidney stones. In addition to the traditional outpatient surgeries, the Outpatient Department offers interventional radiology services. This service features trained radiologists who perform procedures such as uterine and artery embolization less invasively than traditional surgery, usually under local anesthesia.
The Outpatient Department also provides numerous non-surgical services including chemotherapy and endoscopy.
Of the thousands of tests referred to Fauquier Hospital Laboratory every year, over 95% are performed in the hospital using state-of-the-art clinical equipment and computer automation.
The remaining tests are performed by a network of regional and national reference laboratories that are also fully accredited, including Piedmont Medical Laboratory in Winchester, VA, Quest Diagnostics, Nichols Institute in Chantilly, VA and the Virginia State Department of Health Laboratory in Richmond, VA. Blood products are provided by the American Red Cross in Norfolk, VA.
Fauquier Hospital also serves as a collection site for paternity testing and federally mandated Department of Transportation and non-Department of Transportation urine drug testing.
The Pathologists and Medical Director are board certified in clinical and anatomic pathology. The Medical Technologists performing the testing are all certified by national credentialing agencies. The hospital laboratory is accredited with distinction by the College of American Pathologists.
