UF Health Autopsy Services makes contract postmortem examinations available for hospitals and legal next of kin throughout Florida. We specialize in performing forensic, pediatric and private autopsies, and all examinations can be customized to meet the needs of families and physicians.
Striving to go above and beyond the limited services offered by other autopsy providers, our expert autopsy physicians pay close attention to detail on every case. All requested bodily focal points are painstakingly appraised, which oftentimes reveals case-relevant diseases and conditions that less experienced medical examiners might overlook.
Our goal is to provide Floridians with the best and most trusted autopsy services in the state. When contracted with UFAS, legal next-of-kin and other approved parties are given direct access to our physicians for consultations on autopsy procedures and findings (when available).
