  • Building a brand new, state-of-the-art, purpose-built dermatopathology laboratory.
  • Installing advanced Information Technology and a new purpose-designed Laboratory Information System as well as a high-definition, high bandwidth videoconferencing facility.
  • Building a comprehensive library of immunohistochemical and other special stains.
  • Conducting daily case slide reviews with dermatopathologist and other histopathologist colleagues.
  • Providing training and education to the current and next generation of practitioners in dermatology and pathology.

We’re also proud to support Laverty Pathology, which performs a full range of pathology testing in their comprehensive, full service modern laboratory.
