Labcorp acquires diagnostic clinical laboratory services from AtlantiCare

Labcorp is acquiring select assets from AtlantiCare’s clinical outreach business, according to a Monday announcement.

The largest health care organization in southern New Jersey serves the AtlantiCare Physician Group and Affiliated Physicians and their patients.

“As a health system, we are committed to evolving the care and services we provide,” said Lori Herndon, CEO and president of AtlantiCare. “Our past collaboration with Labcorp has helped us provide comprehensive testing services to meet the growing needs of our community. Most recently, this has included Labcorp’s ability to provide critical testing, collections, lab equipment and supplies throughout the pandemic. This collaboration will enhance the breadth and quality of laboratory services patients and healthcare providers have come to expect from both of our organizations.”

AtlantiCare’s patients will now be able to access Labcorp’s expansive test menu and services through the company’s extensive network of patient service centers, including Labcorp at Walgreens. Many of AtlantiCare’s physician office phlebotomy sites and outpatient collection services will now be operated by Labcorp.

Labcorp said the deal is the latest in a series of new and expanded collaborations between Labcorp and health systems across the country, demonstrating the value that Labcorp brings to improve laboratory services and help enhance patient care.

“Labcorp is keenly focused on delivering value to our health system partners, physicians and the broader community,” said Bill Haas, senior vice president of Labcorp’s Northeast Division. “Our multiyear, comprehensive relationship with AtlantiCare is a prime example of that focus. Through this enhanced outreach relationship, Labcorp is furthering its commitment to AtlantiCare’s patients and providers to improve health and improve lives in the region, including through increased diagnostic testing access.”
