Quest Diagnostics opened a facility in Tampa that will improve customer services for healthcare clients and employees throughout the United States. This project will create as many as 350 jobs; more than 175 jobs than was expected. These jobs will be in areas including customer service, logistics and human resources. Quest operates full-service clinical laboratories in Tampa, Miramar and Orlando, according to a June 18 statement by the Office of Governor Rick Scott.
In the statement, Governor Rick Scott was quoted as saying, “These 350 new jobs will mean more Floridians will be able to provide for their family and live the American Dream,” said Governor Rick Scott.
“It is good that more jobs are being created. I may apply for one of them,” said Jennifer Washburn.
