Labcorp, a global provider of innovative and comprehensive laboratory services, announced the completion of the previously announced transaction with Legacy Health to acquire select assets of Legacy’s outreach laboratory business. Labcorp also now manages Legacy’s inpatient hospital laboratories through a long-term laboratory agreement to provide staffing, leadership, scientific knowledge, analytics, supply chain services and laboratory support. 

“This milestone will benefit communities in Oregon and Southwest Washington by expanding access to Labcorp’s industry-leading laboratory services and diagnostic testing,” says Rajat Mehta, senior vice president of Labcorp’s West Division. “The closing of this deal reinforces Labcorp’s commitment to providing access to high-quality testing throughout the region by building on Legacy Health’s longstanding history of serving communities.”

Legacy is a six-hospital health system with a full-service children’s hospital, a 24-hour behavioral health center, and more than 80 primary care, specialty and urgent care clinics. Legacy provides comprehensive healthcare services across its communities in Portland, Southwest Washington and Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley.

Upon completion of full integration of the laboratory agreement, health care providers and patients throughout the region will have more direct and convenient access to Labcorp’s full range of laboratory services. Legacy continues to maintain ownership and licensure of its hospital laboratories.

“The providers and patients Legacy serves will benefit from Labcorp’s innovative diagnostic capabilities and comprehensive laboratory services,” says Kecia Kelly, senior vice president and chief nursing officer. “Partnering with Labcorp furthers our mission of good health for all.”
