Quest Diagnostics honored with 2020 C. Everett Koop National Health Award
Quest Diagnostics has received the prestigious 2020 C. Everett Koop National Health Award for efforts to improve employee health and well-being. Quests’ employee population health strategy is centered on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s “Triple Aim” approach—enhancing the experience of care, improving population health, and reducing per capita healthcare costs.
Over the past several years, Quest has been able to improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare spending. The company has saved more than $40 million in healthcare costs over four years, and subsets of its employees have measurably improved their biometric screening values (such as cholesterol, hemoglobin A1c, blood pressure and body weight), helping to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic diseases.
“I couldn’t be more proud of what we have done as a company, and what we have done to really change things for our employees in a very positive way,”
– Steve Rusckowski, Chairman, President, and CEO of Quest Diagnostics.
