Laboratory & Blood Draw
Our Laboratory/Blood Draw section plays an important role in guiding the healthcare you receive at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital. Roughly 80 percent of the information used by physicians to make important medical decisions is obtained by clinical laboratories. Our goal is to safely perform timely and accurate laboratory testing in a customer-oriented environment.

A written lab order is documentation that includes the full patient name, date of birth, social security number and valid health care provider name with contact information.
All illegible or unclear orders must be verified by lab personnel prior to administering laboratory services.
Patients must present either a DoD ID card (CAC) or driver’s license with photo upon arrival to the outpatient phlebotomy clinic. Patients who cannot present appropriate Identification will be asked to visit Patient Administration to verify eligibility. Patients will be given a temporary eligibility form and will be asked to present a DoD ID card to the PAD within 30 days of their visit so as to avoid receipt of invoice for received services.
NOTE: The outlying clinics at Dumfries and Fairfax are not able to process lab requests from outside civilian purchase care providers. Patients with external requests for labs need to come to the Fort Belvoir Community Hospital Laboratory with a printed requisition or have it faxed to the Laboratory Main Fax number to process the order.
