Patients are now able to order their own lab tests at The Medical Foundation
The Medical Foundation is now offering Direct Testing, a service that allows patients to order routine blood tests without having to go through a doctor’s office.
With Direct Testing there is no need for insurance. Whether patients order the tests online at www.YourDirectTest.com or at a patient service center, they’ll now have access to a menu of routine tests by a certified and accredited lab, all without a doctor’s order.
Laboratory testing categories include: allergy, basic blood chemistry, coagulation, heart and stroke testing, hormone, infectious disease, kidney function, nutrition and vitamin panels, sexually transmitted diseases, wellness checks and more. The Foundation will accept VISA and Mastercard debit and credit cards.

January is National Blood Donor Appreciation Month
Firefighters typically see a lot of different traumas over the course of their careers. Anything from very tragic car accidents, to heart attacks to broken bones and transport of the elderly.
Jim Hummell, Division Chief, Support Services of Clay Fire Territory is no different. Since the mid 1970s, he’s been responding to these types of calls. And it’s these people, the ones in need, who led him to become a loyal blood donor.
Our records for blood donors at The Medical Foundation don’t date back to the first time that he donated a unit of whole blood, but Jim just donated this week for the 521st time. After donating red cells for quite some time, the Foundation began collecting platelets and Jim was one of the first people to donate.
