After a hysterectomy, can blood tests for std's be performed at a STD testing site that is not the physician's office? Is it common enough?

In brief: Yes.

Today full std testing can be done via blood test only, there is no longer need to obtain any genital swabs or even urine samples.
The hysterectomy would make no difference in any case. You can ask your regular family physician to test you, for peace of mind, or possible exposure, and ask them to draw the blood for the test. It's that simple.
