Pathology Service at Western Health is a contracted service through Dorevitch Pathology.
You can use Pathology services at Western Health if:
Your GP or Community Health Provider has requested pathology tests for you (eg blood tests)
You are in hospital at Footscray Hospital, Sunshine Hospital, Williamstown Hospital, Hazeldean Transition Care or Sunbury Day Hospital and your doctors have requested pathology tests.
A collection centre is where you will need to go to have your tests. You can search for a collection centre near you. This will tell you opening hours and where to find the collection centres.
Some tests need you to do things before you have them. This will tell you what you need to do before your tests.
You can ring us for your test results on 9244 0472. We will also send a copy to your doctor.
Your doctor or health care provider will arrange for someone from Dorevitch to come to your room or will direct you to a collection point on site.
The nurses or health care provider will make sure that you are ready for your tests.
We will send the results to your doctor.
Pathology Services operate 24 hours per day and offer comprehensive diagnostic testing to all Western Health patients.
The areas of testing include:
Haematology & Transfusion Services
There are two laboratories located on site at Footscray Hospital and Sunshine Hospital.
