Diagnostic testing firm closes St. Pete site, lays off workers
November 26, 2019 - US Laboratories will lay off 71 employees at its site at 5501 49th St. N. in St. Petersburg, when it permanently closes the location on or before Dec. 31. The diagnostic testing firm also is closing an office in Dania Beach, and will lay off 31 workers there, according to Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notifications sent to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The WARN notices did not give a reason for the closings. U.S. Laboratories is part of TridentUSA Health Services, which won approval to reorganize its finances after a bankruptcy approval earlier this year.
