As the largest pathology group in South Carolina, Professional Pathology Services, PC (PPS) offers
the broadest range of subspecialty board certifications of any practice in the state. This gives us the
ability to consult internally and ensure that our clients receive the most accurate diagnosis possible.
Serving the pathology needs of PalmettoHealth Richland and PalmettoHealth Baptist Hospitals for
more than 25 years, PPS also services health care facilities and physician offices of all sizes and
specialties across the region. Whether you're a large surgery center or a small practice, we have the
expertise and experience to meet all of your pathology needs. Because our pathologists live, work,
and teach in South Carolina, they are conveniently available for consultation whenever needed.
Many of our staff members hold faculty appointments at area medical schools and, as such,
remain on the cutting edge of the latest developments in pathology. In fact, PPS operates both the
OB-GYN Pathology program and the Ophthalmology Pathology program for the University of
South Carolina School of Medicine. PPS also operates or participates in numerous group cancer
discussions held on the campuses of PalmettoHealth Richland and PalmettoHealth Baptist Hospitals
as well at Hilton Head Hospital, Coastal Carolina Hospital, Bluffton-Okatie Outpatient Center,
and KershawHealth. These include weekly breast and general cancer conferences, bi-weekly
colposcopy conferences, as well as monthly GI, prostate and thoracic cancer conferences.
