Department of Pathology

Clinical Services

The Division of Clinical Pathology is responsible for laboratory testing of blood, urine, and body fluids for disease diagnosis and health maintenance. The Division comprises 10 Laboratory Units, each headed by a specialist who provides for skilled management, implementation of the newest and most accurate tests, and expert clinical consultation.

Over 10 million tests are performed annually in our Clinical Pathology labs. Multidisciplinary teams of pathologists, chemists, biologists, laboratory technicians and technologists, pathology assistants, managers, supervisors and administrators from the Pathology Department work behind the scenes, 24/7, conducting and evaluating medical laboratory tests to detect, diagnose and assist in the treatment of life-threatening diseases and infections.

Using the latest advances in medical and computer technology, the Division maintains state-of-the-art automated equipment at laboratory sites on Montefiore’s Moses, Weiler, Wakefield and Westchester Square campuses. It serves hospitals, nursing homes, the Montefiore Medical Group, faculty practices, and voluntary physicians’ offices at more than 40 sites. Most of these sites are linked to the core laboratory through the Montefiore Clinical Information System. A wide array of point of care equipment is also available to bring specimen testing directly to the patient bedside, and to operating rooms and intensive care units.

Our clinical services include: Clinical Chemistry, Blood Bank/Transfusion Medicine, Cytogenetics, Flow Cytometry, Genomic Diagnostics, Hematology, Microbiology, Molecular Pathology, Point of Care, Virology, and Weiler Rapid Response Laboratory.
