It operates three hospital laboratories, an outpatient laboratory and 17 patient service centers serving Southern California. Overall, PDL performs over 12 million tests annually.
Like most laboratories in the U.S., PDL faces significant pressures in the marketplace. These pressures include competition from national reference laboratories like Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp, both of which have large facilities on the California coast. In addition, several major university and health system laboratories in the state offer competing outreach services.
