A Message From the CEO

As ARUP Laboratories celebrates its 40th anniversary in June 2024, I want to personally thank each of our employees. Their commitment to patient care has enabled ARUP to reach this important milestone.

For a company to survive and thrive for four decades is rare, and the history of our company is rich. In this special edition of Magnify: The Art and Science of Diagnostic Medicine, we will share stories of the determination and grit that launched ARUP from a tiny, high-risk startup into one of the nation’s four largest clinical reference laboratories.

I want to acknowledge the founding pathologists and the 100 employees who joined them in surrendering their jobs and taking great personal risk to join this endeavor. Our 4,500 employees now provide the best in laboratory medicine to hospitals and health systems in all 50 states.

Most importantly, though, as we remember the journey that brought us here, I want to recognize everyone who has ever worked at ARUP and express my sincere appreciation for the shared purpose, friendship, and support we have shown and will continue to show one another.

Ours is a story of outstanding business success that I am proud to share. We have created something very special at ARUP Laboratories. Let’s celebrate!

Andy Theurer
