About Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology
Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology is one of Australia’s largest and most respected diagnostic testing laboratories, regarded for our expertise in esoteric as much as routine testing. We are a member of the Sonic Healthcare group, a global company with a reputation for excellence.
We deliver a comprehensive service to doctors, private hospitals and nursing homes in Queensland, Northern NSW and Darwin. Medically managed, we are well-placed to understand the needs of doctors and their patients. As Australia’s largest private referral laboratory we also specialise in complex testing that demands high-level expertise and a commitment to staying at the leading edge of scientific innovation. Our main laboratory in Brisbane is among the world’s most advanced and designed to foster interdisciplinary collaboration between our many specialist pathologists and scientists, providing them with the environment they need to solve the complex diagnoses required of modern medicine.
Routine or complex, we take great pride in delivering the highest quality diagnostic testing 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In July 1956, Dr John Sullivan opened the doors of his small family pathology practice to serve the people of Brisbane. Within 18 months, he was so busy he invited colleague Dr Nick Nicolaides to join him. From modest beginnings, the practice would grow to become one of the largest and best-known in Australia.
Medical Leadership facilitates the highest standards of professional and operational excellence. Since our beginnings we have been managed by pathologists supported by committed management teams focused on providing the best patient care.
Our parent company, Sonic Healthcare’s global network of companies is united by a set of core values that reflect the care and expertise required to consistently deliver exceptional medical services. Considerable time is spent on nurturing this unique corporate culture.
Our foundation principles are designed to provide clear guidelines about the interaction between our people and our customers—patients, doctors and healthcare organisations so that we ensure that we remain focussed on the needs of patients and their referring doctors.
