The lab at Hill Country Memorial is a comprehensive, full-service medical laboratory offering a wide variety of tests. We understand how nerve-racking it can be to wait on results. That’s why the HCM lab prioritizes rapid turnarounds and accurate results.

Operating under the expertise of over 30 pathologists, lab technologists, lab technicians and phlebotomists, our hard work never stops. Because you need results, and your health is always our highest priority.
