The outreach laboratory business and a few other associated assets of RWJBarnabas Health have been fully acquired by Labcorp, a top worldwide life sciences organisation. The largest academic healthcare system in New Jersey is RWJBarnabas Health.
“The communities, physicians and health systems we serve are central to everything we do at Labcorp”, “Our expanded relationship with RWJBH will build on the solid foundation RWJBarnabas Health has developed, and will offer patients and providers enhanced access to high-quality laboratory services, seamless data integration and connectivity and exceptional value to help improve patient care and outcomes.”
Bill Haas, senior vice president of Labcorp Diagnostic’s Northeast Division
Through this partnership, doctors at RWJBarnabas Health and their patients will have access to a wider range of test options as well as Labcorp’s large network of patient service locations, which includes Labcorp at Walgreens. Additionally, Labcorp will provide improved service to rural markets, broader health plan coverage, and the possibility of lower out-of-pocket lab expenditures for individuals who have been treated at a RWJBarnabas Health laboratory. Local communities will also offer STAT and same-day testing.
“At RWJBarnabas Health, we take pride in creating and sustaining healthy communities by providing high-quality health care throughout New Jersey”, “By working alongside Labcorp, we will provide comprehensive testing services and enhance the laboratory service offerings. We are always evaluating how best to serve our patients, clinicians and physicians. This strategic business decision will provide a high-performing, streamlined outreach network to support our community.”
