Quest Diagnostics has acquired certain assets of California Laboratory Associates (CLA), a clinical lab network serving patients and providers in the greater Los Angeles area. CLA’s operations and patients were previously supported by caregivers and the laboratory at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California. Quest will now add several CLA patient service centers to its network in Los Angeles County, while Providence Saint Joseph will continue to operate its lab for hospital patients and certain outside physician services. “We look forward to bringing Quest’s insights and innovations to more individuals and providers in Southern California,” said Steve Rusckowski, chairman, president, and CEO of Quest. “This acquisition will deepen our presence and ability to serve the region, while advancing our strategy to accelerate growth and drive operational excellence through strategically aligned, accretive acquisitions.”
