Mayo Laboratory Provides Weekly Milo Services

February 22, 2008 - TRC

DOVER-FOXCROFT - Mayo Regional Hospital's Laboratory will provide weekly service to the public at Milo Family Practice starting March 20.

A Mayo laboratory staff member will be at Milo every Thursday from 7-11 a.m. to draw blood samples from any patients in the Milo/Brownville area who have a valid doctor's order. The service is available to any patients, not just those associated with Milo Family Practice.

It is suggested that only patients who need fasting blood tests come to the new lab service prior to 8:30 a.m.

The new service is being offered as a pilot project to gauge demand in the Milo area. Satellite lab services are also offered by Mayo weekly in Dexter. The expansion to Milo is designed to increase access and reduce travel for patients.
