Healthcare Workers Union Opposes Lab Sale to Quest Diagnostics

Published: Aug 10, 2017

HYANNIS –A healthcare workers union that represents more than 1,700 members at Cape Cod Healthcare are opposing the company’s proposal to sell its outreach laboratory services to Quest Diagnostics.

Members of 1199 SEIU sent a letter this week to Massachusetts Health Policy Commission Executive Director David Seltz explaining their concerns.

They say that the proposed outsourcing of services from Cape Cod Healthcare to Quest may reduce costs, but will place an extra burden on the backs of healthcare workers.
