Welcome to the Department of Pathology and Clinical Laboratories

Laboratory medicine is at the heart of every accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan. That's why we take it so seriously at Rush North Shore.

Our pathologists (medical doctors who specialize in laboratory medicine) direct the Department of Pathology and Clinical Laboratories. We are the people behind the scenes who are responsible for the sophisticated laboratory tests that help diagnose and treat diseases.

At Rush North Shore, we ensure the quality and accuracy of thousands of test results each year. In addition, we oversee the laboratory professionals, medical technologists, and phlebotomists (people who draw blood) who also help perform these procedures.

Our staff performs many of the tests and procedures that your doctors order, including:
  • Strep screens, urine cultures, and other microbiology tests for a variety of conditions
  • Blood testing for cholesterol, cancer, diabetes, and other diseases
  • Tissue biopsies to test for cancer
  • Blood transfusions
As part of our commitment to the community, our staff also provides screening tests for cholesterol, prostate cancer, diabetes, and other conditions at health fairs held throughout the year. We are as interested in helping prevent disease as we are in treating it.

Like other departments at Rush North Shore, the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is dedicated to training the next generation of medical professionals. In partnership with Oakton College, the department acts as a clinical laboratory site where future medical laboratory technicians are trained.

If you have any questions about our services, please call the Department of Pathology and Clinical Laboratories at 847/933-6600.
