News : Quest Diagnostics Inc. Hiring at New Facility
June 18, 2014 -- Quest Diagnostics Inc., a provider of diagnostic information services, will hire up to 500 new jobs at a new Lenexa facility, the company said.
The employees, most of them involved in customer service, will be located at 9601 Renner Blvd. in the Renner Ridge Corporate Center. Quest Diagnostics announced last July that it had subleased that 77,000-square-foot space, which was previously operated as a 600-seat call center by T-Mobile US Inc.
Its new facility, called a Quest Diagnostics National Operations Center, is designed to extend and enhance customer services for the company's health care clients throughout the United States.
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.
"Quest Diagnostics has been an important corporate contributor to Lenexa for several years," U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, said in a release. "We are thrilled that they have elected to extend their operations in Lenexa and create new quality jobs for our community."
Jim Davis, Quest's senior vice president of operations, said Lenexa offers the firm "skilled job candidates along with a pleasant living environment."
