Reduced Rate On Required Serum Titers At Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital (SLCH)
If you are a student attending COMP-Northwest in Lebanon, Oregon, you can use the SLCH lab to obtain the required serum titers at a markedly reduced rate. COMP Northwest has a standing order with Occupational Medicine 55 Mullins Drive Suite B2 Lebanon, Oregon. Students should stop in or call Occupational Medicine to have the order for the labs sent to SLCH. This order form must be given to the lab to obtain the required serum titers at the reduced rate. You will be required to pay for this service before the blood can be drawn. Please note, the lab is located within the main hospital. View the Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital Map.
