At HHUMC we have a blood bank unit that collects, separates, tests and stores blood until a patient needs it. If you've donated blood before, you've been part of the blood banking process. This potentially life-saving procedure can help replace blood lost due to surgery or injury. A blood transfusion also can help if an illness prevents your body from making blood or some of your blood's components correctly. Blood transfusions usually occur without complications.
The division of pathology is one of the divisions in the department of laboratory medicine and pathology at HHUMC. We are committed to provide the highest quality clinical service, research and education, but our patient care activities are always our first priority. Here we are continuously engaging in academic and diagnostic activities that broaden the expertise of our own faculty and expand our understanding of human disease and the discipline of pathology.
