Established in 1938, IMVS Pathology is a wholly South Australian medically led network of pathology laboratories, providing the people of metropolitan and rural South Australia with comprehensive quality pathology and integrated clinical services. IMVS Pathology has over 60 patient collection centres and numerous laboratories conveniently located throughout South Australia.
As a not-for-profit organisation, IMVS Pathology bulk-bills patients for all Commonwealth Medical Benefit Schedule (CMBS) pathology tests. In a recent article by Choice magazine, it was recognised as the only consistently 'no gap, bulk billing' pathology provider in South Australia.
Profits generated from pathology are used to support rural communities, medical training and medical research. IMVS Pathology has over 250 elite medical researchers studying diseases and disorders ranging from blood, breast and colon cancer, bone fractures, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, hepatitis, infectious diseases and genetic disorders.
