Quest Diagnostics Incorporated (DGX: Quote), provider of diagnostic testing, information and services, launched a major management restructuring. The company will eliminate existing business structures and replace them with two new business groups, Diagnostic Information Services and Diagnostic Solutions. The changes are scheduled to take effect by January 1. The company expects it will be able to eliminate three management layers, or approximately 400 to 600 management positions, by the end of 2013, thereby contributing about $65 million in savings to the previously announced cost reduction goal of $500 million associated with its Invigorate program.

The Diagnostic Information Services group, which will include the vast majority of the company's revenues, will replace the current Physician Services, Hospital Services and Cancer Diagnostics businesses. It will develop and deliver diagnostic testing, information and services, and be responsible for new test development; sales and marketing; routine and esoteric laboratories; and field operations.
