Advocate Health Care and Aurora Healthcare in Wisconsin are joint venture partners in a regionalized, consolidated laboratory called ACL Laboratories.
The consolidation is a business model in which two laboratory systems are operated as one, under a single management structure. The concept of consolidating non-time-dependent laboratory testing facilities has proven to significantly lower the cost per test to both health systems and contribute to improved operational and quality efficiencies. It's also become the key to success for over 2,100 laboratory professionals just like you.
