Originally founded in 1913 as a clinical laboratory, we are the oldest private pathology laboratory in the State of Colorado. Metropolitan Pathologists, P.C. (MetroPath), has long been a leader, innovator, and pioneer in anatomic pathology.
Metropath has been instrumental in the development, advancement, and innovation of anatomic pathology services, laboratory equipment, technologies, and methodologies throughout our history. We were one of the first labs to adopt the ThinPrep® Pap Test upon its introduction in 1996.
MetroPath’s pathologists successfully advocated for the formation and development of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, a nonprofit medical society committed to educational, scientific, and charitable advancement within the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine. Today, the society has more than 130,000 members.
We also assisted with formation of the Medical Technologists Registry, an industry association that develops criteria for certification and classification of laboratory technologists throughout the country.
Since MetroPath’s inception, we have remained committed to one mission — exceptional patient care. With high expectations for the organization, we continue to expand our testing menu, capabilities, personnel and facilities.
