HISTORY

Naples Pathology Associates, PA, has served southwest Florida for over 25 years. The group was formed in 1988 as a private practice of four pathologists providing Naples Community Hospital with anatomic pathology services and medical directorship of the hospital laboratories. The partners realized that there was a need for a high quality, service-oriented independent laboratory for local physicians’ offices, and opened the independent laboratory in 1994.

Since then, Naples Pathology Associates has grown to eight pathologists with subspecialties in dermatopathology, hematopathology, cytopathology, and transfusion medicine. In addition to providing anatomic and clinical pathology services to what is now the NCH Healthcare System, the independent Naples Pathology laboratory has broadened its range of services to include performance of frozen sections, bone marrow biopsies and gynecologic (Pap test) and non-gynecologic cytology. The laboratory now receives specimens from all over Southwest Florida, out-of-state physicians’ offices, and day surgery centers.
