Laboratory Services

Lab at NLH

The Baker Memorial Laboratory uses high-quality, state-of-the-art equipment and procedures to perform a wide range of testing to serve our community.

We are accredited by the State of New Hampshire, College of American Pathologists (CAP), Joint Commission, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).

We are proud to offer:

  • Posting of results to myDH within 72 hours of release
  • Immediate electronic transmission of completed test results to your Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center provider 
  • A patient-centered service model of personalized, friendly care
  • A comprehensive diagnostic test menu
  • Short wait times
  • Insurance coverage of lab services from most insurance companies (please verify if your plan applies lab services to co-pay or deductible)

Note: You will need to register before every laboratory visit, even if you have a doctor's appointment the same day and have already registered for that appointment.

Emergency laboratory services are available 24 hours a day.
