The Department of Laboratory Medicine (formerly Clinical Pathology) of Kyung Hee Medical Center consists of 9 sections such as clinical chemistry, diagnostic hematology, clinical microbiology, blood bank, diagnostic immunology, diagnostic molecular genetics, cytogenetics, urinalysis, and blood & other specimens' collection, We have the mission to early detect disease, to evaluate effectiveness exactly for the treatment and to estimate the prognosis of disease and to interprete the results of tests. Additionally we try to supply proper blood and components transfusion securely, and to protect hospital infection.

This Laboratory is approved as a laboratory performing highly qualified tests in all aspects by "the Korean Association of Quality Assurance for Clinical Pathology", and performs daily quality control internally using quality control specimens cleared by FDA in accordance of the documentary guideline for the exact test results.
