Know Who We Are
There are eight community hospitals and regional medical centers in the Piedmont Pathology network. We also serve practices along the South Eastern US.
We offer a full range of Diagnostic Anatomic Pathology services including Diagnostic Immunohistochemistry, Molecular and Cytology services. We also serve as a regional reference laboratory for Diagnostic Immunohistochemistry and Molecular services.
Our medical staff has a combined experience of over 323 years of clinical practice and represents subspecialty expertise, training or certification in Cytopathology, Gastrointestinal Pathology, Gynecologic and Cervical Pathology, Dermatopathology, Hematopathology and Surgical Pathology.
Piedmont Pathology Laboratory has achieved the highest accreditation standards set by the College of American Pathologists. In addition, our medical staff serves as inspectors for the College of American Pathologists (CAP) to evaluate the competence of other hospitals and private laboratories to determine their qualifications for CLIA and CAP certification.
Our interest in the continuum of quality care for our patients and physician clients, has led us to establish a regional electronic medical record for pathology which allows us, as a matter of routine, to correlate previous and current Cytologic and Surgical Pathology samples. The regions served by Piedmont Pathology have been identified as having one of the lowest rates of invasive cervical cancer in the nation.
Our commitment to quality patient care and rapid reporting is exemplified by our 95 percent 48 hour reporting schedule.
Let us show you the difference Piedmont Pathology can make for your patients.
