The Clinical Laboratory and Pathology Departments at Hilton Head Hospital provide inpatient and outpatient diagnostic tests to aid your physician.  Our staff consists of medical technologists, and phlebotomists.  Our board-certified Pathologists oversee the acquisition and analysis of patient specimens in a tightly controlled professional environment.  Our results are reported to the clinician through a sophisticated information system.
