Brunswick County Laboratory Services

Who the Program Serves

Laboratory Services are available to people of all ages who are a patient of Brunswick County Health Services or a patient of a private doctor. Note: Some tests or services may require a doctor’s referral, but lead screening, cholesterol screening, and pregnancy testing do not require a referral. Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) testing must go through the STD clinic.

Services Program

Full laboratory services are available. All findings are referred to the ordering physician, whether a Health Services provider or private doctor.


Beginning September 1, 2016, Brunswick County Health Services will only provide sliding fee scale (based on income) lab services to patients who have been seen in our clinics and have labs ordered by our staff providers. We will not be able to offer LabCorp contracted  rates or sliding fee scale rates for lab orders written by non-staff providers.

If patients would like to continue to come to Brunswick County Health Services for lab services, there will be a flat rate of $13.00 for phlebotomy services due at time of services.  Patients will then be directly billed by LabCorp at their standard rates for the ordered labs.

Laboratory Hours

  • Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Fridays 8:30-11 a.m.
  • Walk-ins are welcome. Call 910-253-2250 or 888-428-4429 (toll-free), or email
  • The Laboratory is located at 25 Courthouse Drive (Building A) in Bolivia.


  • Fees for services are on an income-based sliding scale only to patients seen by Health Services staff providers.  Please see the notice above.
