Health Diagnostic Laboratory to expand in Richmond, creating 213 new jobs
- October 27, 2010
Health Diagnostic Laboratory Inc. (HDL) plans to invest $4.2 million to expand its Richmond operation, creating 213 new jobs.
Expansion of the company’s site in the Virginia BioTechnology Research Park will increase the size of its clinical laboratory and beef up its diagnostics, clinical trial services and physician/patient consulting.
The company offers a comprehensive test menu of risk factors and biomarkers for cardiovascular and related diseases. “Stories of people surprised by sudden heart attacks are far too common,” Tonya Mallory, CEO and co-founder of HDL said in a statement. “… By growing HDL Inc. we are in a position to move the medical community far beyond total cholesterol and outdated measurement techniques, and instead provide physicians with comprehensive and accurate information that surpasses the reach of conventional HDL and LDL analysis.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Richmond to land the project. The Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the Health Diagnostic’s recruitment and training activities.
