RE: Pathologist Coverage

From:"MacDonald, Jennifer" <>, 'Mary McCoy' <>

Surgical cases approx 15500 (includes non-gyne cytology, FNAs)
Paps  approx 17000
autopsy 3

We have 31/2 Pathologists.  Our 1/2 covers when the others are off so there
are only 3 here at any time.  We do immunos, although not full service.  We
have no PAs and the Pathologists do cover the Clinical lab.
