In the past few months at Premier Medical Laboratory Services, we have had the pleasure of welcoming a few South Carolina politicians and their staff to our headquarters in Greenville, SC. Alongside Lindsey Graham’s visit, two of the visits were from former Congressman Joe Cunningham and Senator Tim Scott’s office, who were able to take a tour of our laboratory and learn more about what we do to protect our state and nation. 

Senator Tim Scott’s staff visited our 40,000 sqft facility which houses leading-edge automation equipment and allows us to perform advanced medical diagnostics on a large scale. During the tour, CEO, Kevin Murdock, discussed with Senator Scott’s staff all that we’re doing here for the improvement of healthcare throughout South Carolina and the US at large, what we’ve done to create South Carolina jobs, and how we have applied the latest in science and technology to overcome infrastructure restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

More recently, Former Congressman and South Carolina Governor candidate, Joe Cunningham, visited to tour our facility and discussed our broad menu of medical testing services, how we’re continuing to help in the COVID-19 response both on a state and national level, as well as our plans to impact the diabetes epidemic with the only predictive genetic test for type two diabetes in the nation. 

Both visits were a great opportunity for Senator Scott and Congressman Cunningham to know about all that is being done right in their home state of South Carolina to improve healthcare for the US. We were honored to have them join us and look forward to seeing what we can do together for patient care.
