Under the multi-year agreement, Quest Diagnostics will provide laboratory supply chain expertise as well as capital equipment, supplies, and reagents for Tower Health, a regional integrated healthcare system in Pennsylvania, the organizations announced on Thursday.
Quest will continue to conduct reference testing for Tower and further explore additional opportunities that drive long-term value for both organizations, they 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," Jim Davis, CEO and president of Quest Diagnostics, said in a statement.
Tower Health provides healthcare 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.
Financial and other terms of the collaboration were not disclosed.
