SLUCare pathologists offer complete, state-of-the-art diagnostic, consultative and
therapeutic services to referring physicians, community hospitals, independent laboratories

hospital stays and reduce health care costs. We welcome consultations from other pathologists
who desire a second opinion about a complex case.

sophisticated testing and informatics capabilities of our fully accredited laboratories

disorders; renal biopsy and muscle biopsy interpretation; special expertise in adult, pediatric, fetal and forensic autopsies;
and a wide range of molecular diagnostic tests for the evaluation of neoplasias and
infectious diseases. We have special expertise in GI and liver pathology; cytopathology and fine needle aspiration; GYN, ENT, soft tissue and bone, and pediatric
