Regional Pathology Services was formed in 1974 to facilitate development and regional access to cutting edge laboratory testing technologies at UNMC and to provide an avenue for pathology consultation with University of Nebraska Medical Center pathologists. We have experienced significant growth and change in the last 40 years of operation but remain committed to our initial goals. Regional Pathology Services provides marketing, client services, specimen triaging and billing services for the University of Nebraska Department of Pathology and Microbiology and The Nebraska Medical Center Clinical Laboratories.

To provide access to exceptional, highly advanced, clinical and anatomic pathology consultation services, while providing a superior level of quality and service in the most cost effective manner.
To support the medical community of Nebraska and to become the reference laboratory of choice regionally, nationally and internationally by providing highly specialized and innovative diagnostic testing, educational resources, clinical expertise, and exceptional consultation services.
The strength of our programs is inherent to our academic affiliation. The pathologists all hold primary appointments in the University of Nebraska Medical School and to varying degrees all have service, teaching and research responsibilities. Through the Department of Pathology and Microbiology we maintain teaching programs for residents of pathology and students of medical technology and cytopathology. Pathology staff are responsible for a significant component of the medical school curriculum for sophomore medical students. We also have expertise in public health and function as the Nebraska Public Health Laboratory through contract with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.
Most significantly, the pathologists and technical and clerical staff are all committed to a strong customer service focus which, is often missing as a component of the academic mindset. We provide pathology services in a wide variety of health care settings and will tailor services to meet your needs. Our current customer base includes other academic medical centers, private pathology practices, hospital laboratories, smaller reference laboratories, commercial clinical trials services and physicain offices.
Regional Pathology Services provides billing services for the client as well as Medicare/Medicaid and/or third party payers. RPS performs claim submission for both technical and professional fee claims.
We hope that you will choose Regional Pathology Services as your laboratory partner. We will provide you with the highest quality pathology and laboratory test results together with a committed focus on your specific customer service needs.
