LabCorp, Walgreens open patient service centers

July 11, 2017—Walgreens and LabCorp announced a collaboration in which LabCorp will develop and operate patient service centers within select Walgreens stores. “LabCorp at Walgreens” centers will be located near the pharmacy area in a secure, comfortable environment for specimen collection. Patient check-in for lab testing will be provided at the pharmacy, and Walgreens and LabCorp intend to explore additional ways to jointly enhance patient care.

Seven LabCorp at Walgreens locations will begin seeing patients in 2017, with five patient service centers in Denver and one in Morrisville, N.C. A Deerfield, Ill., location is planned to open by the end of the year.

“I cannot imagine a better partner than Walgreens to bring LabCorp closer to consumers in locations where they are already accessing high-quality health care services,” David P. King, LabCorp chairman and CEO, said in a statement. “The customer-centric culture and nationwide footprint of Walgreens are a perfect match for LabCorp and the patients we serve. This significant collaboration will enhance LabCorp’s patient engagement in key markets across the country and offer increased access to LabCorp’s broad range of laboratory services as we execute our mission to improve health and lives.”

Tests on specimens collected at Walgreens locations will be performed through LabCorp’s network of primary and specialty laboratories.
