Our 650+ medical experts provide consultation on next steps for physicians’ patients, and we invest in state-of-the-art testing and technology, helping to drive accurate diagnoses for even the most complex cases.
Quest has expanded from our original primary focus on heart disease to a multi-pronged proactive approach that focuses on critical diagnostic insights across the cardiometabolic continuum. This unique interconnected approach ensures that healthcare providers have a complete survey of a patient’s cardiometabolic health and supports earlier preventive intervention.
In addition to serving about half of hospitals and physicians and approximately 1 in 3 adults each year in the US, Quest Diagnostics has become a recognized thought leader and innovator in COVID-19 research and services. Our original research and critical insights are highlighting the many unanticipated impacts of the pandemic on public health.
Additionally, through Q4HE, we have taken a bold stand in committing to addressing testing access inequities in the short-term and disparities in outcomes into the future.

Students and teachers grow vegetables using the Tower Gardens® aeroponic growing system and use plant life to teach multiple subjects including science, math, and language arts.
Only 65% of Black adults aged 50 and older are up-to-date with potentially life-saving colorectal cancer screening.
