Medical Laboratory exists to serve patients and the physicians who care for them. Our mission is to provide the highest quality Clinical and Anatomic pathology services to physicians, hospitals, health-care organizations and patients.

Medical Laboratory of Southwest Louisiana began providing Anatomic Pathology Services in 1959 and Clinical services in 1963 under the name Oak Park Clinical Laboratory. In 1996 the name was changed to Medical Laboratory of Southwest Louisiana. Under the direction of C. Gregory Bowling, MD, Laboratory Director, our test menu has expanded to allow the local medical communities access to quality laboratory service at the local level.
