As the largest, physician-owned, anatomic 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. Along with serving the pathology needs of Palmetto Health Richland, Palmetto Health Baptist for more than 30 years and now including Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge, PPS also services health care facilities and physician offices of all sizes and specialties across the region. Whether you are a large surgery center or a small practice, we have the expertise and experience to meet all of your anatomic pathology needs. Because our pathologists live, work and teach in the area, 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 Palmetto Health Richland and Palmetto Health Baptist Hospitals as well as Hilton Head Hospital, Coastal Carolina Hospital, Bluffton-Okatie Outpatient Center, Tuomey Hospital and KershawHealth. These include weekly breast and general cancer conferences, bi-weekly colposcopy conferences, as well as monthly GI, prostate and thoracic cancer conferences.
