“We are excited to expand the markets we serve to now include the obstetrics and gynecology community,” stated William McDowell, CEO of Poplar Healthcare. “With the advent of new molecular technologies that aid in the detection of sexually transmitted and pre-malignant disease, it made sense for Poplar Healthcare to leverage our existing laboratory infrastructure and managed care providership and begin providing the latest diagnostic testing to OB/GYN physicians and their patients.”
