Established in Toledo, Ohio in 1946, Pathology Laboratories, Inc. (PathLabs) fostered a reputation among the area's private medical practitioners as a provider of prompt, reliable and convenient laboratory testing services. Its status as a key partner in the delivery of quality medical care to the community was advanced in 1970 when PathLabs became the first independent medical laboratory in Ohio to seek and attain accreditation by the College of American Pathologists - the preeminent laboratory certifying body in the nation. Over the ensuing decades, PathLabs continued its tradition of uncompromising quality, personal service and overall excellence to become the dominant full-service independent medical laboratory in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. Since 2004, we have rapidly expanded our operations to other areas of Ohio including Cleveland, Columbus and Lima and their surrounding communities. Committed to a formal yet dynamic quality assurance program, PathLabs regularly monitors key quality indicators. Significant variations from established performance thresholds are examined and corrective measures implemented, as needed. An extensive regulatory compliance program and compliance review committee have also been formed to assure PathLabs' conformity with all applicable federal, state and local laws and guidelines governing the laboratory industry.
