Clinical Pathology

Clinical pathology services are provided at all nine area hospitals with a large reference laboratory located at UnityPoint Health-Methodist in Peoria. To learn more about what our clinical pathologists do, check "Role of Pathologist."

Clinical Pathology Tests:

  • Hematology Test - determines the type and number of blood cells (e.g., white blood cell count).
  • Coagulation Test - determines the blood's ability to clot (e.g., prothrombin time).
  • Chemistry Test - determines the chemical makeup of blood (e.g., cholesterol level).
  • Microbiology Test - determines the presence of bacteria or other organisms in blood, other body fluids or tissue (e.g., throat cultures).
  • Blood Bank - determines the appropriate blood units and components to be used in a transfusion.
