Our Service

The Sydney Adventist Hospital Pathology Laboratories - 'San Pathology' - was established in 1898. The laboratory has met the needs of Hospital patients and people within our community ever since. The experience and depth of care that comes with being associated with a large, acute care surgical hospital provides peace of mind for both our patients and the doctors utilising our diagnostic and interventional facilities.

Our laboratory is accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) to ISO 15189:2013. San Pathology has been accredited by NATA longer than any other medical laboratory in Australia. It is also registered under the accreditation scheme of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia. Our Pathologists work in close consultation with referring doctors and provide additional clinical information as required. They can be contacted every day, as well as out-of-hours in urgent cases. Our highly trained and dedicated team includes pathologists, scientific and technical staff, as well as blood collectors, office staff and couriers.
