INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) – New Jersey-based Quest Diagnostics (NYSE: DGX) has completed its previously-announced acquisition of the remaining interests in Indianapolis-based Mid America Clincal Laboratories. Quest now wholly owns MACL’s laboratory in Indianapolis and approximately 50 patient service centers across Indiana.

Quest says it now provides professional lab management for nearly 30 hospitals of Community Health Network and Ascension St. Vincent in Indiana. The health systems are formerly joint venture partners in MACL. In addition, AmeriPath, the specialty pathology business of Quest Diagnostics, will continue to provide services to these hospitals and broadly across Indiana.

With the completed transaction, Quest says patients and providers in Indiana now have direct access to a broader menu of clinical laboratory and pathology services.

Financial terms were not disclosed.
