Preparing for a medical exam or blood test

Numerous treatments, tests, examinations and samples are available at the different CIUSSS of Saguenay − Lac-Saint-Jean facilities.

Collection Centres

Specimen Collection Centres take blood (blood tests) and other samples such as throat, nose or pap smears. It is also where you must bring samples that your doctor has collected (e.g. cytology) or that you have collected, such as urine or sputum (secretions).

To do this, you must have a paper from your doctor in hand specifying the required analyses, as well as, your hospital and health insurance card.

 Warning!  Opening hours may vary. Check before you leave.
