Community Service

We believe that in these challenging economic times, it may be difficult to access healthcare when needed. Pacific Pathology Associates, Inc. has been honored to help the following programs by offering services at no cost to patients without health insurance.

  • Free Colon Cancer Screening Project – every March the physicians at Salem Gastroenterology Consultants offer free screening colonoscopies for patients without insurance. Pacific Pathology Associates, Inc., the Salem Cancer Institute and Salem Health all join Salem Gastroenterology Consultants by partnering with them to offer education, advertising, tissue processing and biopsy interpretation at no cost to patients.

  • Project Access - Project Access is a physician-led program where physicians, hospitals and other healthcare facilities volunteer to see a certain number of uninsured patients at no charge. Our commitment to this program is to offer our services to 25 patients per year. There are over 50 Project Access programs in operation throughout the U.S.
