Jersey Shore Lab Location
Patients must visit the Registration desk prior to presenting their request to the lab. The lab is located on the ground floor, off the connecting corridor to the former hospital.
In Jersey Shore Hospital a lab registration office is located directly across from the lab, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Patients can access this office by turning left at the elevators off the Main Entrance lobby and proceeding up the ramp, or by entering the former hospital building on the left off the parking lot, and proceeding right down the hallway. Someone is stationed to assist you, if needed. Patients must register at the Main Building during all other lab outpatient hours not listed above.
