PLUS Diagnostics

Water Street invested in PLUS Diagnostics in 2006 when it was a regional laboratory specializing in urology. We recruited an industry-leading executive team and board led by Tim Brodnik, the former president and CEO of American Medical Laboratories, and longtime diagnostics executive, David Pauluzzi. Together, we transformed PLUS into a national anatomic pathology leader offering a comprehensive menu of diagnostic services.  Water Street invested our team’s industry experience and network or resources to support PLUS with opening bi-coastal laboratories, introducing innovative new tests and recruiting an experienced team of nationally recognized pathologists.  In seven years, PLUS tripled its laboratory capacity and expanded its capabilities into dermatopathology, hematopathology, gastrointestinal and genitourinary pathology.  Miraca Life Sciences acquired PLUS in 2013 to become the largest independent pathology company in the United States.
