Wilmington Pathology Associates (WPA) was founded in 1976, and began serving New Hanover County as a hospital based group at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Wilmington Pathology Associates has grown to provide pathology services for Cape Fear Hospital, Atlantic SurgiCenter, Wilmington SurgCare, Pender Memorial Hospital, Brunswick Community Hospital and many independent physicians’ practices.

Wilmington Pathology Associates opened a free standing laboratory in June 2000, focusing on cytology, particularly monolayer ThinPrep™ Pap tests and HPV testing. In March of 2001, a full service histology laboratory was added to enhance our level of patient care. In 2008, Wilmington Pathology Associates spun off the lab and created Wilmington Pathology Laboratory (WPL) employing thirty team members ranging from pathologists and a microbiologist to cytotechnologists, histology technicians, lab technicians, transcriptionists, administrative assistants, sales people, business managers and couriers.

Through this independent laboratory, Wilmington Pathology Laboratory grew to offer a full range of surgical pathology and cytology services including:

  • Comprehensive immunohistochemistry library
  • Fine needle aspiration interpretation
  • Next day turn around on most biopsy specimens
  • HPV, gonorrhea & chlamydia testing
  • Frozen Sections
  • ThinPrep™ Pap tests
  • Flow cytometry

In July 2011 Wilmington Pathology Laboratory was acquired by Solstas Lab Partners Group, allowing the lab to expand its testing capabilites and provide additional services and support to Physician practices. Wilmington Pathology Associates continues to be an independent local pathology group partnering with Solstas Lab Partners to provide the highest quality services to Physician practices and patients.

Wilmington Pathology Associates, along with Solstas Lab Partners, covers the majority of southeastern North Carolina. Our clients enjoy the benefit of receiving more personalized and dedicated service from pathologists and other medical personnel they can call if a question arises about a patient's care. Recognizing the need for this type of professional yet personalized service, WPA continues to expand services within the Carolinas.
