Test results your way - fast, reliable and professional



A lab test can confirm a physician’s initial diagnosis, ensure that you receive the appropriate treatment for your condition, and catch a potential issue before it becomes a serious health problem. That’s what we do for our patients every day. Speed, accuracy, privacy, and professionalism are the cornerstones of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s laboratory, where we conduct more than 200,000 blood and tissue tests every year. When your physician orders a blood test or an EKG, you can rest assured that our staff will complete your test accurately, and get the results back to you promptly. We are fully accredited by the College of American Pathologists, which sets the gold standard for measuring the quality of procedures in hospital laboratories.
