Centra Lab was established in 1989 to meet the laboratory needs of the medical and business community in central Virginia.

Wellness Programs

Services span the spectrum, from cholesterol screening to a comprehensive blood program that includes hemograms and PSA tests to detect prostate cancer. Costs are calculated on a flat rate and screenings can accommodate any number of employees. Phlebotomists and an on-site coordinator staff each screening to ensure its success. Screening is available around the clock to accommodate companies employing up to three shifts of workers.
