BEAVER SPRINGS, Pa. – Geisinger is making it easy and convenient to get laboratory collection services in the Beaver Springs area through its Mobile Health Services bus. The bus will be set up each Tuesday in the parking lot of the Middlecreek Area Community Center, 67 Elm St., Beaver Springs, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Geisinger staff will provide laboratory collection services right on the bus, including blood draws and urine samples. This convenient option allows patients with lab orders, like those with diabetes, to receive care without having to travel long distances to clinics. 

No appointment is necessary for lab services. The bus will serve anyone who needs them, including Geisinger patients and those of other providers. 

“The mobile unit is an easy and convenient option for those needing laboratory services,” said Ken Smeal, operations manager of mobile phlebotomy for Geisinger. “Bringing the care service to the community instead of asking them to travel long distances all leads to our goal of making better health easier.”

Geisinger’s Mobile Health Services bus is a 41-foot clinical unit that brings important health services to communities across Geisinger’s service area. The bus is outfitted with a triage space, private exam room and bathroom. The Mobile Health Services bus is one of four mobile units Geisinger has in service.

Though no appointment is necessary for lab services on the mobile unit in Beaver Springs, Geisinger patients can self-schedule an appointment via MyGeisinger starting in July.
