Laboratory & Pathology Services

The Clinical Laboratory and Pathology Departments at Jackson Purchase Medical Center provide inpatient and outpatient diagnostic tests to aid your physician. Our staff consists of medical technologists, histologists and phlebotomists. Our pathologist oversees the acquisition and analysis of patient specimens in a tightly controlled professional environment. Our results are reported to the clinician through a sophisticated information system.

At JPMC we make every effort to ensure consistent quality throughout the laboratory system: high standards for personnel, the latest instrumentation, automation, and methodologies. Jackson Purchase Medical Center's laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists.
