Changing The Face Of Healthcare Delivery And Cost Through Preventative Care: Health Diagnostics Laboratory, Inc. Tonya Mallory Named Ernst & Young National Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2012 Emerging Category Award Winner





RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tonya Mallory, President, CEO and Co-founder of Health Diagnostic Laboratory, Inc., has been named the Ernst & Young National Entrepreneur Of The Year ® 2012 Emerging Category Award winner. The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Award is the country's most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs. The award encourages entrepreneurial activity and recognizes leaders and visionaries who demonstrate innovation, financial success and personal commitment as they create and build world-class businesses.

Mallory was recognized for bringing her vision that medicine should be preventative, not reactionary, to fruition. Through her commitment and focus on improving the disease management services that Health Diagnostics Laboratory, Inc. (HDL) provides, as well as expanding the network of physicians it caters to, Mallory hopes to gain market share and significantly reverse the trend of increasing medical care costs.  She was honored at the Entrepreneur Of The Year gala, the culminating event of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum ® in Palm Springs, Calif. The Forum is the nation's premier gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies. Awards were given in nine additional categories. All Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners were selected by an independent panel of judges from 244 regional award recipients. 

"The best ideas usually come to life when entrepreneurs look to fill a gap in an industry they feel passionate about," said Bryan Pearce, Americas Director, Entrepreneur Of The Year, Ernst & Young LLP. "Capitalizing on her unique business model, Mallory has beat the odds, gaining traction in an otherwise well-established healthcare market with big players."

Inspiration from experience on the front lines

Mallory began her professional career as a laboratory technician where she gained more than 20 years of experience in clinical diagnostics and disease management. It was during that time she realized how reactionary medical practices are after an event such as a heart attack or stroke has happened; there were relatively few preventative measures in place for high-risk patients. Her vision was to assist in identifying and treating the patient before a more serious condition occurs, and to cut down on the exorbitant costs of an emergency room visit in the process.
