Pathology plays a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Often it is the final word in diagnosing a patient's condition and helping to monitor the effects of treatment. Even though patients may not personally see the pathologist or laboratory technician involved in their care, the pathologist and laboratory technician is involved in their treatment 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Pathology services include surgical pathology, histology, cytology, autopsy, chemistry, hematology, serology, blood bank and microbiology. Studies have shown that 70% of medical decisions rely on laboratory data. We proudly offer our medical community and our patients laboratory data that is comprehensive, accurate and timely. Our lab never closes; we provide results around the clock each and every day to maximize the healthcare provided at Yale-New Haven Hospital Saint Raphael Campus.
