Delport is vice president of supply chain management at Phoenix, AZ-based Sonora Quest Laboratories, the nation’s largest integrated laboratory system with approximately 3,100 employees serving more than 23,000 patients daily throughout Arizona. Sonora Quest Labs is a joint venture between Banner Health and Quest Diagnostics, and performs more than 60 million diagnostic tests per year.
