NEW YORK (360Dx) – Quest Diagnostics announced today that it will provide full laboratory management services for Georgia-based Houston Medical Center and Perry Hospital.
Under the agreement, Quest will provide management expertise, lab equipment, supplies, and procurement processes to the two hospitals. It will also perform reference testing to them. Other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
According to their respective websites, Houston Medical Center is a 237-bed acute care facility, and Perry Hospital is a 45-bed acute care facility. Both are part of Houston Healthcare and are located in Warner Robins, Georgia.
"With the ongoing challenges and opportunities in healthcare, this new relationship allows us to remain focused on improving patient care and outcomes, while teaming up with a leader in the field who has access to the most sophisticated diagnostic equipment available," said Houston Healthcare Acting CEO and Chief Operating Officer Charles Briscoe in a statement.
The deal follows Quest's acquisition of the outreach laboratory services operations of Michigan-based Hurley Medical Center in October.
