About Legacy Laboratory Services

Proven results

Our business is based on a formula that's been time-tested to deliver the best results.

  • An extensive network of laboratories throughout Oregon and SW Washington make it easy to access our services. We also provide outpatient testing services to more than 2,500 physicians and offer emergency toxicology and substance abuse testing to businesses
  • For inpatient and outpatient laboratory results, we offer 24/7 electronic access to your reports.
    In-house Client Services Representatives and Diagnostic Field Representatives are available locally to assist you with any service issues.
  • Our team is comprised of more than 600 laboratory professionals, including board-certified pathologists, Ph.D. clinical scientists, registered medical technologists and laboratory technicians.


We perform thousands of tests per day, with industry leading turnaround times. Strict quality control standards ensure consistent, quality results, time and again.

  • We are backed by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Joint Commission (JCAHO). All Legacy laboratories comply with state laboratory regulations: Oregon Administrative Rules for Clinical Laboratories and Washington Medical Test Site laws.
  • We invest in technology to support critical new areas of testing, including a molecular diagnostic laboratory, a cytogenetics laboratory, a SAMHSA-certified drug-testing laboratory and our Cascade Cytology Reference Laboratory.
    Unique to Legacy, the Guardian Tracking System allows us to provide point-to-point specimen tracking. This means your specimen and patient information is continually monitored and kept confidential.
  • For routine tests, our clients can expect next-day turnaround. Less common and esoteric tests are generally available in two days.


We are proud to be the preferred provider of laboratory services in the Pacific Northwest. It's a designation our clients have given us for the last 10 years. We've earned this distinction by being the only independent reference laboratory offering extensive testing in Oregon along with access to local pathologists, billing services and client assistance.

As the health care environment continues to evolve, we will be right there with it-adapting our services to what's best for you and your patients.
