Gamma Laboratories was founded in December of 1981. The first laboratory had very humble origins, it began in a basement with 28 physician and hospital accounts.
In March of 1985, Gamma expanded its service to include 8 long term care facilities and by the end of that year had grown to service over 80 long term care facilities. Gamma began to focus its attention on the long term care industry after seeing there was an absence of quality laboratory services in the industry. To this day, Gamma HealthCare still services some of its very first long term care accounts.
