TORONTO, ONTARIO and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services ("LifeLabs") today announced it has entered into an agreement to purchase B.C. Biomedical Laboratories Ltd. ("BC Biomedical") to better serve patients in the province of British Columbia. LifeLabs and BC Biomedical provide laboratory testing services that help B.C. health care providers diagnose, treat, monitor and prevent disease in patients. The two organizations provide high quality diagnostic services to community patients through patient service centers, homecare and long-term care visits, and dedicated laboratory testing facilities.

"I am very pleased to announce that our two companies are coming together to serve patients and their health providers in B.C.," said Sue Paish, President and CEO of LifeLabs. "With increasing demand for testing services and a challenging fiscal environment, we need to become even more effective and efficient in ensuring British Columbians receive the best service and reliable access to testing. At the same time, we need to continue to invest in technologies and innovation for patients and health care providers."

"Our two organizations care about patients and helping physicians identify the right course of action for better health care outcomes," said Doug Buchanan, CEO of BC Biomedical. "So, in bringing the two companies together, we are fully aligned in our commitment to quality and continuous improvement in patient services in B.C. going forward."

The purchase agreement is subject to regulatory approvals from the Provincial and Federal governments. Subject to completion of these terms, LifeLabs expects the transaction to be completed later this Spring. Further information will be provided at the time of closing.
