Lab at Doernbecher

Welcome to the Pediatric Lab at Doernbecher

Doernbecher Children’s Hospital offers the only specialty pediatric lab in Oregon and southwest Washington.

Our phlebotomy lab is staffed by skilled pediatric phlebotomists who have special training in caring for children of all ages and circumstances.

Our lab is designed with children in mind and we pride ourselves on our anxiety-free environment. The lab features child-friendly attributes, including purple and orange child-sized draw chairs and Winnie the Pooh characters on the walls. After each draw we give the child a toy of his or her choice. This helps a child overcome the negative emotion of the draw and brings positive thoughts to coming to the lab.
