NW Pathology

We have been providing pathology service to the Northwest Washington region for over 25 years. Our primary office is in Bellingham, with a full histology laboratory that operates round-the-clock, an immunhistochemistry laboratory with an extensive IHC menu, and a molecular laboratory. We also have offices in Mt. Vernon and Port Angeles. Our focus is Anatomic Pathology, with multiple areas of subspecialty expertise and a dedication to fast turnaround time. We also provide medical directorship for the clinical laboratories at many of our affiliated hospitals. We are affiliated with 10 hospitals in Northwest Washington, on the Olympic peninsula, and in Southeast Alaska, and provide service to numerous outpatient clinics in these areas. We have an extensive courier system in our region of service and a state-of-the-art laboratory information system (LIS) with direct interfacing to EMRs at our affiliated hospitals and clinics. Our professional team includes pathologists who have subspecialty boards or interest covering essentially all aspects of surgical pathology and laboratory medicine. While Northwest Pathology is large enough to offer subspecialty expertise, we are small enough to have a personal relationship with our physicians. We are always available for discussion and consultation, and strive continuously to provide outstanding service. Our pathologists are on call 24/7 to respond to your urgent needs. If we can be of service to you, please call.
