Pathology Consultants, Inc. services the Prisma Health System of South Carolina, which includes Prisma Health – Upstate and Prisma Health – Midlands.
We are a local pathology group that has an independent laboratory, with over 100 employees. Keeping business local is vital to our community growth and economic stability. We have expertise in our practice that rivals any major teaching hospital, such as Duke University Medical Center and Emory University Hospital. We are accredited by the College of American Pathology, with Excellence, and by CLIA.
All supplies required to collect and transport a specimen to PCI are provided by our laboratory at no cost to you. PCI employs and trains its own courier services so you can be assured that your specimens are handled with the utmost care to preserve specimen integrity. Specimen pickup times are tailored to complement your work flow, not ours.
The College of American Pathologists (CAP), celebrating more than 50 years as the gold standard in laboratory accreditation, is a medical society serving more than 17,000 physician members and the global laboratory community. It is the world's largest association composed exclusively of board-certified pathologists and is the worldwide leader in laboratory quality assurance. The College advocates accountable, high-quality, and cost-effective patient care.

CAP members are involved in a broad range of disciplines, including surgical pathology, cytopathology, dermatopathology, neuropathology, forensic pathology, blood banking/transfusion medicine, clinical chemistry, microbiology, immunopathology, hematology, genetics, and molecular pathology.
