Date:1/10/2008

BRISTOL, Tenn., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rep. David Davis, R-TN, will see the vital and expanding role laboratory testing plays in patient care during a tour of Highlands Pathology Consultants this Friday, Jan. 11.

Pathologists Theresa Emory, MD, FCAP, and Jack Bechtel, MD, FCAP, will host the 8 a.m. tour for Rep. Davis, who will view a Pap test and cancer slides through a multi-headed microscope.

Rep. Davis says he looks forward to his visit to the laboratory, which plays a vital economic and public health role in District 1.

"I make it a priority to spend as much time as possible in the district so that I can be better prepared to represent all my constituents in Congress, and I'm very excited to learn more about the tremendous work they are doing at Highlands Pathology Consultants," Rep. Davis said.

Dr. Emory says the tour will illustrate the medical laboratory's role as a key element of patient care and show how laboratory results provide a crucial thread that runs through the entire patient care process.

"Laboratory test results drive a significant portion of clinical decisions, from diagnosis to therapy," Dr. Emory says. "This tour will underscore how the medical laboratory contributes to the maintenance of wellness, the diagnosis of illness and the treatment of disease."

Highlands Pathology Consultants operates multiple laboratory facilities in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia providing pathology services and medical directorship for 10 hospitals in the region. In addition, medical directorship is provided for several private clinical laboratories in the area and the Marsh Regional Blood Center. Highlands Pathology Consultants employs 75 people - including 11 pathologists board-certified in anatomic and clinical pathology - and cares for approximately 83,000 patients annually.

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) is a medical society serving about 16,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world's largest association composed exclusively of pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. The CAP is an advocate for high quality and cost-effective patient care.
