Our pathologists provide diagnostic services to support the complex tertiary care provided by specialists and sub-specialists in the hospitals we serve. The types of tests performed by our highly-trained staff encompass the entire field of human disease, from everyday diagnostic services to clinical and anatomic laboratories that specialize in bone marrow transplants.
The laboratories of UKHealthCare are among the most wide-ranging laboratory services in Kentucky. Full-service laboratories are housed at Chandler Hospital, and some laboratories are maintained at the UKHealthCare Good Samaritan facility. These labs are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and perform over 2 million tests a year. Lab testing services are provided for in-house services, but also to hospitals and physicians around the state.
The laboratory staff consists of managers, medical technologists, cytotechnologists, histotechnologists, lab assistants, phlebotomists, administrative and support staff. In addition to clinical chemistry, hematology, clinical microbiology, and transfusion medicine, UKHealthCare has labs that specialize in apheresis, flow cytometry, hematolpathology, molecular diagnostics, stem cells, virology, and complex anatomic pathology.
