Along with the 4 p.m. ceremony that ends the NYSE’s trading day, Rusckowski was also a guest on several financial networks, discussing Quest’s two-point strategy, unveiled last week at the company’s Investor Day event. Among the CEO’s stops were NYSE Facebook Live, TheStreet.com, and Cheddar.

At each, Rusckowski spoke about the company’s laser-focus on accelerating growth and driving operational excellence and Quest’s role at the center of the healthcare ecosystem. “

“Patients are taking much more of an active role in health care,” Rusckowski told NYSE Facebook Live. Most of us are paying a larger share of health care costs every day, so we’re making choices. So it’s very important as Quest Diagnostics that we think about that, give them the information they need to make educated decisions in health care.”
