Under the leadership of Chairman Robert D. Kalter, M.D., our department performs a wide variety of anatomic and clinical laboratory tests on a 24-hour, 7 days a week schedule. Our team begins with a dedicated phlebotomy staff that draws blood on all patients and delivers it to the laboratory for analysis. Specially trained laboratory staff in the chemistry, hematology and microbiology divisions analyzes these specimens, along with other body fluids.
Surgical pathology provides the diagnosis of surgically removed tissue. The cytopathology division performs fine needle aspirates and makes diagnoses of cells from these aspirates and other specimens such as pap smears.
Dedicated to providing quality patient care, the staff of pathology and laboratory medicine works closely with all departments of the Medical Center to obtain, analyze and diagnose infectious and non-infectious diseases.
