Metropolitan Medical Laboratory, PLC and Quad Cities Pathologists, LLC have been strong community leaders since 1914. This is when Dr. Frederick H. Lamb established his practice of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology serving hospitals in Davenport, Iowa and Rock Island County, Illinois. Dr. Lamb was instrumental in developing pathology as a medical specialty in this country. He was a founding father and president of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, a founding fellow of the College of American Pathologists, and an original trustee and vice-president of the American Board of Pathology.
A history of growth…
Iowa - From this modest beginning in a small suite in the Davenport Bank Building, the laboratory expanded in 1958 by moving to Kirkwood Boulevard in Davenport. In 1972, the laboratory moved to its present Iowa location at 1814 East Locust Street. The site expanded in 2000 to include a second building. Currently at this location are the Anatomic Pathology and Cytology testing departments, Billing Services, Courier Services, Information Technology Services, a busy Laboratory Patient Services Center, and more.
Illinois - To better serve the entire Quad City community, the Illinois campus began in 1976 with a facility at City Line Plaza in Moline . Here, a microbiology culture media facility was established. The Metro Towers Building at 1520 7th Street, Moline was purchased in 1983. Over the following two decades, three additional buildings were added. Currently at this location are the Central Laboratory, Courier Services, Human Resources, Marketing, Client Services, a busy Laboratory Patient Services Center, and more.
Metropolitan Medical Laboratory is focused on bringing our community the very best in laboratory medicine, and is an integral component of a very strong local health network.
