Health Buzz: New Site of Service Lab Coming to Newport

HealthBuzzResidents of Sullivan County and southern Grafton County covered by the State Employee Health Benefit will soon have a new Site of Service option for diagnostic lab work. Lab work done at Site of Service locations does not apply to your annual deductible, so the more options, the better.

The new location will open on Oct. 27 at 71 Belknap Ave. in Newport. The location shares a building with Keady Family Practice, and Quest has its own entrance on the right-hand side of the building.
