Pathology

The Department of Pathology is involved with the  diagnosis of cancer and other major medical conditions through the gross and microscopic examination of tissue samples obtained from surgical procedures and endoscopy (Anatomic Pathology).

Our department also provides  clinical laboratory services to the hospital as well as consults in the areas of clinical chemistry, hematopathology, microbiology, and transfusion medicine (Clinical Pathology).

Autopsies are also performed by the clinicians in our department to investigate the causes of death of hospitalized patients to help provide closure and health information to families of our patients.
