Proven Track Record

The members of our practice pathologists have over eighty combined years of practice experience.  Our senior member, Dr. James Maynard, began his career in Rock Hill in 1975, joined the following year by Dr. Earl Jenkins.  Since that time, these physicians have been respected by their clinical colleagues for their contribution to the healthcare team.


Continuity of Care

When the physicians of York Pathology make diagnoses on the biopsy specimens from the physician office, the patient is best served.  This practice helps the final pathology correlation when the patient has their definitive procedure at the hospital.  This helps prevent duplicate testing on complicated cases, and provides for quality assurance of all healthcare providers.


Hospital and Pathology Quality Assurance Activities

We offer twenty-four hour, seven days a week consultative coverage for the physicians and patients in our community.  All prostate biopsies, all breast biopsies, and all malignancies are reviewed by at least two pathologists to ensure diagnostic accuracy and quality.  All cancer cases are reported in CAP-approved protocols to ensure all necessary information is accurately relayed to the treating physician.  We offer a rapid standard turn around time of twenty four hours, with larger cancer cases usually taking forty eight hours.  Our members are active in ensuring hospital wide quality by serving on medical staff committees including Medical Executive Committee, Infection Control, Pharmacy and Therapeutics, Trauma, Credentials, Oncology, and Radiation Safety.  We participate in the weekly Tumor Board in which difficult cancer cases are discussed in a multidisciplinary fashion to optimize patient treatment options and ensure excellent overall patient care.  Consultation with other major medical universities and cancer programs is available on unusually difficult cases.
