InCyte Pathology and Eastside Pathology Announce Merger
Posted: Aug 07, 2012


InCyte Pathology, based in Spokane, WA, and Eastside Pathology, based in Bellevue, WA, have entered into a preliminary merger agreement.  This merger creates a Northwest regional pathology practice where physicians and hospitals can now access thirty-six board certified pathologists with expertise in 27 disciplines/subspecialties.  
Eastside Pathology currently provides anatomic and clinical pathology services to Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue, WA, Valley Medical Center in Renton, WA and physicians’ offices throughout the entire Puget Sound region.  Both practices have been providing pathology services to clients for over fifty years.  Eastside Pathology’s eleven board-certified pathologists will join InCyte Pathology’s group of twenty-five board-certified pathologists in a common mission to expand pathology coverage and expertise to hospitals and healthcare providers in Washington, Alaska, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.
“This merger enables InCyte Pathology to strengthen its competitive advantage against national laboratories and implement ‘best practices’ across both organizations,” explains InCyte Pathology’s Chief Operating Officer, Gary Gemar. “The pending merger with Eastside Pathology enables InCyte Pathology to develop ‘centers of excellence’ and become an integrated provider of pathology services for all our clients.”
“We at Eastside Pathology are thrilled to be aligned with InCyte Pathology, a group whose history, culture and approach to pathology practice so closely mirrors our own,” noted Dr. Peter Herreid, dermatopathologist at Eastside Pathology.  “The regional and national anatomic and clinical pathology landscape is so complex these days that collaboration and cooperation are critical to enhancing pathology services to all levels of healthcare providers throughout the Pacific Northwest.  In addition, we believe that our practice model will be attractive to other pathology practices in the Northwest.”
