HHC’s hospital-based laboratories and the inpatient and outpatient services they provide are not included in the transaction, and will remain part of the Hartford HealthCare system.
HHC and CLP have collaborated with Quest since CLP’s formation in 1998, with Quest providing high-end reference testing for CLP and all five of HHC’s affiliated hospitals. Once completed, the acquisition is expected to build on this experience to deliver several distinct benefits to patients and physicians in Connecticut. These include significantly greater patient access and convenience through a combined patient service center network in the state, and thousands of test services, including highly advanced and novel genetic sequencing tests for cancer, neurological disorders and other diseases. The two organizations also intend to explore opportunities to collaborate in population health and data analytics, among other areas, based on Quest’s laboratory data.”
