Larry King Cardiac Foundation And Quest Diagnostics Announce Partnership To Donate Diagnostic Testing To Patients In Need

Stocks in this article: DGX

Quest Diagnostics will provide the LKCF with a broad menu of routine, advanced and gene-based cardiovascular tests, and work directly with the Foundation’s participating hospitals to facilitate access to testing.

“Innovations in clinical diagnostics offer physicians advanced tools for the detection, identification and management of cardiac patients, helping to prevent serious complications or disability from heart diseases,” said Robert Superko, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Quest Diagnostics’ subsidiary Celera and its Berkeley HeartLab. “We provide these important tools to help clinicians make more informed decisions to improve care and to demonstrate our commitment to empowering better health through scientific innovation and diagnostic insights. It’s an honor to support the LKCF, its premier cardiac care centers, hospitals, physicians, and nurses.”

The LKCF is affiliated with premier cardiac centers: Children’s National Medical Center and George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, D.C.; Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and LAC+USC Medical Center in Los Angeles, California; New York Presbyterian: The University Hospital of Columbia and Weill Cornell University Medical Center in New York, NY; St. Joseph's Hospital/Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia; The Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio; Rush University Hospital in Chicago, Illinois; The Methodist Hospital, Houston, Texas; Jackson Memorial, Miami, Florida; and Pepin Heart Institute in Tampa, Florida.

Above all, the LKCF and Quest Diagnostics stress the importance of talking to your doctor about heart health, your family heart health history, and your personal risk.

“Despite increased awareness, heart disease is still the leading cause of death. It’s time to stop talking and do something about it,” said Larry King. “Be aware of the vital numbers for a healthy heart, practice a healthy lifestyle, and talk to your physician about ways you can avoid cardiovascular disease.”
