Quest Diagnostics teams with Pa.-based Tower Health to deliver laboratory services

Quest Diagnostics and Tower Health, a regional integrated health care system in Pennsylvania, plan to team up to enhance the quality and value of diagnostic services to patients and their doctors.

Under the multiyear agreement, Quest will provide laboratory supply chain expertise, including the purchase of capital equipment, supplies and reagents. Quest will also continue to perform reference testing for Tower, in addition to further exploring additional opportunities that drive long-term value for both organizations.

Tower Health provides health care and wellness services to communities in Berks, Chester, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. Quest will support three hospitals within the Tower Health network: Reading Hospital, Phoenixville Hospital and Pottstown Hospital.

“We are excited to team up with Tower Health, a leading health care provider in Pennsylvania,” Jim Davis, CEO and president, Quest Diagnostics, said. “As more people return to care and hospitals contend with post-COVID-19 challenges, hospital systems like Tower Health are turning to Quest for help on executing their lab strategy, taking advantage of our expertise, innovation and scale so they can focus on caring for patients and the community.”

“We are pleased to partner with Quest Diagnostics to help us streamline and enhance our lab operations,” Tower Health CEO and President P. Sue Perrotty said. “The ability to leverage Quest’s purchasing power for equipment and supplies and their expertise in supply chain logistics allows us to continue to do what we do best: provide high-quality care to our patients.”
