Quest Diagnostics St. Louis laboratory expansion to provide additional capacity and fill key industry need for life insurers’ business continuity plans.
LENEXA, Kansas, April, 2013 – ExamOne, a Quest Diagnostics company and the leader in helping insurers meet their underwriting needs, is expecting to begin processing insurance laboratory specimens at the newly expanded Quest Diagnostics laboratory in St. Louis in June 2013. With unmatched capabilities in disaster recovery planning, this laboratory will act as the primary back up for insurance testing.
“We are excited for the opening of the St. Louis laboratory as the sister operation to our Lenexa, Kansas, laboratory,” said Troy Hartman, President of ExamOne. “Much like our parent company, Quest Diagnostics, we know multiple laboratories in different metropolitan areas are key to our clients’ business continuity plans. This is a first for the insurance laboratory industry and will provide ExamOne clients unparalleled protection for their underwriting service needs.”
Quest Diagnostics owns and operates more than 30 laboratories across the country. St. Louis will be the second location to process insurance specimens on a daily basis for ExamOne clients.
