The acquisition of ConVerge Diagnostic Services by Quest Diagnostics could bring additional jobs to the area.
"ConVerge is our fourth laboratory acquisition this year, and the second in Massachusetts, underscoring our commitment to the state and New England," said Steve Rusckowski, President and CEO, Quest Diagnostics.
The acquisition includes ConVerge's laboratory in Peabody, Massachusetts, and its patient service centers operating in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut.
ConVerge will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quest Diagnostics
and its laboratory will operate as part of Quest Diagnostics' national
laboratory network, according to a press release from Quest. Over time, the ConVerge laboratory is expected to be
integrated into a state-of-the-art laboratory facility Quest
Diagnostics is building in Marlborough.
