Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week
Pathologists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis of disease—especially cancer and pre-cancerous conditions. They examine all specimens removed from patients in the operating room to diagnose disease and assist the surgeons during their operations, assist oncologists with further testing of tumors to clarify treatment options, and make sure that all laboratory testing options are kept up-to-date and meet all the required regulatory and quality standards.
Our Department of Pathology is full service, providing tests for both inpatients and outpatients. We are accredited by The Joint Commission, licensed by the State of New York and registered with the Food and Drug Administration.
The laboratory operates 24 hours a day, seven days per week and is staffed with pathologists and a skilled mix of technologists, technicians, and lab assistants, who utilize state-of-the-art technology that provides rapid, accurate, high-quality test results.
Expertise that is expansive and personalized
Our pathologists are board certified, trained at internationally recognized university medical centers and have broad experience and subspecialty training. They maintain a professional relationship with the physicians at Good Samaritan, and they are always available to consult and discuss patient care, individually and right on site.
The department reports on approximately 20,000 specimens each year. The group prides itself on its commitment to delivering timely and accurate diagnostic information to physicians and patients.
