With more than 700 employees and over 50 pathologists and PhDs conducting lab work across Montefiore’s campuses and facilities, the Department of Pathology at Montefiore Medical Center is one of the largest and most comprehensive medical center laboratories in the country. In addition to processing approximately 10.5 million billable tests each year, the Department of Pathology also serves as a reference laboratory to many hospitals and clinics in the community. Although their work takes place mostly without direct patient contact, pathologists are essential to the roles physicians play in their patients’ lives and wellbeing.
As the Department of Pathology continues to grow, plans for continued expansion are already in the works. Designs for a state-of-the-art pathology lab are currently underway in Westchester County, which will serve as the main reference lab for all of Montefiore.
On behalf of the entire Montefiore community, thank you for your thoughtful contribution and timely consideration.
