FORT MYERS, FL – Governor Rick Scott visited NeoGenomics Laboratories today to highlight the company’s recent growth and job creation. Over the last five years, NeoGenomics Laboratories has doubled its Florida workforce, creating 124 Florida jobs, including 50 new jobs in Fort Myers since 2013. NeoGenomics Laboratories is a specialized oncology reference laboratory that provides genetic and molecular testing technologies to hospitals and physicians across America.

Because of Florida’s job creators, our private sector was able to create more than 29,000 new jobs for Florida families in March and over 841,000 jobs since December 2010. I am proud today to join NeoGenomics to celebrate their success as we work to make Florida the number one place in the world for jobs and opportunities.”
