Located on the second floor of the Carrington Pavilion, the Clinical Laboratory and Pathology Department operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. This vital department of the Hospital provides almost seventy percent of the clinical information your doctor requires in the assessment of your health and in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of your condition.
The Department provides accurate, reliable and timely testing of all clinical medical samples and operates under the highest standards of quality and excellence. The Department is fully-licensed by the New York State Department of Health, with additional certification and regulation by:
- American Association of Blood Banks
- College of American Pathologists
- Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (Medicare)
- The Joint Commission
At some point, almost every patient is "seen" by the Clinical Laboratory & Pathology Department and the hourly turnaround time for test results has never been faster, thanks to state-of-the-art robotics and fully automated instrument technologies. Millions of precise test results are reported every year from the thousands of clinical samples delivered for testing.
