Pathology

Correctness and timeliness of diagnosis lead to the highest quality of health care.

Department of Pathology provides services in laboratory medicine (clinical pathology) and anatomic pathology. The laboratory medicine includes hematology, clinical chemistry, microbiology, immunology, and blood banking & transfusion medicine. The anatomic pathology services include surgical pathology (examination and diagnosis of biopsies and surgically removed organs), cytopathology (examination and diagnosis of cells in body fluids and fine-needle aspirates of solid tissue), and medical pathology (autopsies). Faculty and staff of the Department of Pathology are committed to delivering the highest quality care to the southern New Jersey community of patients and physicians. The excellence in service is based on five quality pillars: correctness, timeliness, communication with customers and providers, safety and cost-effectiveness.
