The Division of Clinical Pathology is responsible for the laboratory testing of blood, urine, and body fluids for disease diagnosis and health maintenance. The Division is comprised of 10 Laboratory Units, each headed by a specialist who provides for skilled management, provision of he newest and most accurate tests, and expert clinical consultation.
Utilizing the latest advances in computer technology, the Division maintains millions of dollars of state-of-the-art automated equipment at its laboratory sites at the Moses and Einstein campuses and services hospitals, nursing homes, the Montefiore Medical Group, faculty practices, and voluntary physicians’ offices at more than 40 sites. The majority of these sites are linked to the core laboratory through the Montefiore Clinical Information System. A wide array of point of care equipment is also available to bring specimen testing directly to the bedside, the operating rooms, and the intensive care units.
The laboratories perform more than 2500 different tests. Dr. Ira Sussman is responsible for laboratory operations and is Director of the Moses laboratories. Dr. Tylis Chang is Director of the Weiler laboratory.
