Patients must schedule appointments for routine blood work/lab tests and general X-rays. To schedule an appointment, contact central scheduling/patient registration.
Grand View Health has four outpatient centers conveniently located in Harleysville, Pennsburg, Quakertown and Sellersville. Each outpatient center offers a variety of primary care and specialty physician practices (i.e., OB/GYN, cardiology), as well as X-rays, lab services and more, all in one convenient location. Our list of outpatient centers provides the services and hours available, which vary by location. Each location has its own central registration desk, where patients should report to prior to having a test.
We are committed to providing comprehensive tests and treatments services services to the community including:
Cardiac Stress Test: Stress tests are used to help diagnose coronary heart disease, assess your exercise capability, and determine how well your heart handles its workload.
Echocardiogram (cardiac echo): An echocardiogram, also called a cardiac echo, is an ultrasound scan of the heart that uses high-frequency sound waves to provide pictures of the heart’s valves and chambers.
Electrocardiogram (EKG): An EKG is a test that measures and records the heart’s electrical signals as they travel through the heart. Patterns among the heartbeats and rhythms help doctor’s diagnose various heart conditions.
Holter Monitor: A Holter monitor is a portable battery-powered device that records your heart’s electrical activity.
Blood Glucose: A blood glucose test measures the amount of a sugar called glucose in a sample of your blood.
Cancer Blood Test: A cancer blood test is commonly used to rule out or determine a cancer diagnosis.
Cholesterol Screening: Cholesterol screenings measure the level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides.
C-Reactive Protein: C-reactive protein (CRP) is produced by the liver. The level of CRP rises when there is inflammation throughout the body. A CRP test is used to measure the amount of CRP in the blood to treat infections, long-term diseases or other medical conditions.
Thyroid Test: Thyroid blood tests assess thyroid function by measuring thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroid hormone levels to detect certain autoantibodies present in autoimmune thyroid disease. Antibodies are molecules produced by a person’s body that mistakenly attack the body’s own tissues.
Pulmonary function test (PFT)- A pulmonary function test evaluates how well your lungs work. PFTs measure the amount of air in your lungs, how well the lungs move air in and out and possibly how medications affect the lungs. Your doctor may send you for PFTs to diagnose a lung disease, measure the severity of lung problems, as a pre-operative work-up or to see if a treatment is working for your lung disease. A respiratory therapist will guide you through each test.
Bring a list of all the medications you are taking. You may be asked to refrain from using your inhaled bronchodilator four to six hours before the tests; check with your doctor if you have any questions about this.
Don’t eat a heavy meal right before the test and avoid caffeinated foods or drinks. Don’t smoke or exercise strenuously for six hours before the test. On the day of the test, wear loose clothing that won’t restrict your breathing,
Home Oxygen Evaluation– A home oxygen evaluation is testing for the evaluation of desaturation (SpO2 less than 88%) and evaluation of home oxygen need.
During testing you will be asked to walk along a corridor. Your oxygen level and heart rate will be monitored as you exercise. If you desaturate you may be placed on oxygen or your oxygen increased (if already wearing) to obtain an oxygen saturation of 93%.
Pulmonary Testing Hours:
Mon, Tue, Thu: 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
Wed: 11:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Bone Density Testing (DEXA Scans): A bone density test uses X-rays to measure the amount of calcium and other bone minerals that are packed into a segment of bone to detect osteoporosis.
CT Scan: A computerized tomography (CT) scan is a non-invasive procedure that produces a cross-sectional look at the inside of the body to show the structure of and blood flow to and from bones, blood vessels and soft tissues. CT scan images provide more detailed information than regular X-rays.
Interventional Radiology: Interventional radiology is a non-surgical minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat various diseases.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet and radio waves to show the blood flow to and from organs and structures inside the body. MRI imaging is extremely sensitive to soft tissue, such as torn ligaments and tumors.
Nuclear Medicine (Sonography): Sonography, also known as ultrasound technology, uses sound waves to take pictures of internal organs and tissues.
PET/CT Scan: Combining the power of positron emission tomography (PET) with computerized tomography (CT), PET/CT scans reveal metabolic “hotspots” that show rapidly growing tumors.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body, such as the heart, blood vessels, kidneys and liver. Doctors often use ultrasounds during pregnancy to view the fetus. Unlike X-rays, ultrasounds do not expose the patient to radiation.
Vascular Tests (non-invasive): The vascular or circulatory system comprises the heart and blood vessels, including arteries veins and limbs. Non-invasive vascular tests help diagnose and treat vascular conditions, such as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), stroke and aneurysms.
X-Rays: X-rays are a type of radiation called electromagnetic waves. X-ray imaging creates pictures of the inside of your body. Calcium in bones absorbs X-rays the most, so bones look white, while fat and other soft tissues absorb less, and look gray. Air absorbs the least, so lungs look black.
