Quest Diagnostics Inc. will hire up to 500 new jobs at a new Lenexa, Kan., facility, most involved in customer service. The Quest Diagnostics National Operations Center is designed to extend and enhance customer services for the company’s health care clients throughout the United States.
Approximately half of the nation’s hospitals and physicians use Quest’s services, which range from advanced genetic tests for cancer and rare disorders to routine cholesterol and diabetes checks.
The center is expected to be fully operational in 2015. It is one of two Quest Diagnostics National Operations Centers, with the second in Tampa.
