Quest Diagnostics and Cleveland HeartLab will also explore ways to expand Cleveland HeartLab’s existing relationship with MDVIP, the national leader in personalized, preventive care with a network of nearly 1,000 primary care physicians. MDVIP–affiliated physicians have the time, due to smaller patient practices, tools and technology, to focus on wellness and prevention. Both Quest Diagnostics and Cleveland HeartLab provide specialized health and wellness services for primary care settings.
“Heart disease kills more people than all cancers combined, yet it is also largely preventable if caught and treated early,” said Steve Rusckowski, Chairman, President and CEO, Quest Diagnostics. “By combining the science of Cleveland Clinic with the innovation and reach of Quest Diagnostics and Cleveland HeartLab, we will provide new insights for empowering better health. Quest’s relationships with these top institutions also highlights progress with our accelerate growth strategy, which focuses in part on strategically aligned, accretive acquisitions.”
