COVID-19 Alert

We’ve made changes to our facilities to protect our patients, families and staff from COVID-19.

  • Masks are required: Everyone is required to wear masks at all times. Check-in and registration desks are cleaned regularly. We are screening for symptoms at all entrances and our spaces are set up to encourage social distancing.
  • Visitor Restrictions at all locations:
    • Parent and Caregivers: At all of our clinics, we recommend that only one parent or caregiver accompany a patient to their appointment. However, if two caregivers need to come along, we will allow it at this time. 
    • Visitors and Siblings: All other visitors, including siblings over 12 months old, are not allowed to visit at this time at all of our locations.
  • Watch what to expect at your clinic visit during COVID-19 (video).
  • Learn more about the rest of the safety measures we have in place at all Seattle Children’s locations. 

The Laboratory Medicine and Pathology team studies blood, body fluids, tissues and other body samples to help diagnose, treat and monitor illnesses. At Seattle Children's, our tests and procedures are designed to meet the special needs of babies, children and teens.

Tests that involve blood draws can be stressful, so we work with you to find the best approach to help your child through the procedure. Our tests use small samples so we can take the least amount of blood required. We deliver results quickly to the healthcare provider who ordered the test. Please contact your child's doctor's office for test results.

We have labs at our hospital campus in Seattle, Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center, Seattle Children's Everett, Seattle Children's Federal Way and Seattle Children’s Olympia.
