Walmart partners with Quest Diagnostics to bring lab testing to 15 stores

Walmart and Quest Diagnostics have teamed up to bring laboratory testing to about 15 Walmart locations by the end of the year. The sites—at select stores in Florida and Texas—will initially offer lab testing services, though they hope to expand to other basic health care services as well.

Walmart and Quest Diagnostics have teamed up to bring laboratory testing to about 15 Walmart locations by the end of the year. The sites—at select stores in Florida and Texas—will initially offer lab testing services, though they hope to expand to other basic health care services as well. "We are proud to expand consumer access to health care through our work with Walmart," said Quest chairman, president, and CEO Steve Rusckowski. "By providing laboratory testing and health care services where people also shop, we will make it easier for Walmart customers and their associates to get the quality diagnostic insights they need in convenient locations." This is the latest in Quest's efforts to widen accessibility of lab testing, which have included bringing direct access in Colorado and Missouri and also through its Sonora Quest Laboratories joint venture in Arizona.
