Pathology

At Fiona Stanley Hospital, we provide a wide range of pathology services including:

  • anatomical pathology

We aim to support the growing demand for pathology services within the south metropolitan area as well as at our hospital.

Run by PathWest Laboratory Medicine WA, our Pathology department offers a 24 hour daily inpatient service.

A purpose-built pathology facility is located adjacent to the main hospital and includes 3 levels of laboratory and support space.

Specimen Collection Centre

The PathWest FSH Specimen Collection Centre is located on the ground floor of the main hospital, off the main concourse.

Outpatient specimen collections are performed for clinic patients, GP and external requests, including:

  • timed dynamic test collection such as glucose tolerance tests
  • short synacthen tests

Please note that all timed collections must be booked in advance.
