Lance Benedict brings twenty-six years of health care experience to the leadership position of Industry Lab Diagnostic Partners as he evolved from a practicing physician with his own clinic, to owning and operating a pain clinic, surgery center and family practice. That experience has given him intimate knowledge of the day to day challenges physicians face within their practices, which allows him to be able to position Industry Lab Diagnostic Partners to best serve those physicians. Responsible for all facets of operation for Industry Lab Diagnostic Partners, including being the chief compliance officer, Lance has a wealth of knowledge which he willingly shares with clinics daily. His vision is for Industry Lab Diagnostic Partners to be known as the top service oriented lab, with the highest compliance standards, in the market today.
As President and CEO of Industry Lab Diagnostic Partners, Lance brings determination, hard work, honesty and a vision towards the future to the lab every day. His core belief is that success is earned, not handed to you. His willingness to be held accountable generates an atmosphere of trust with anyone he works or does business with.
Lance was a scholarship football player at Michigan Technological University and graduated in 1983 with a major in biology, a teaching certificate, and minors in chemistry and exercise physiology. His history as a college instructor of anatomy and physiology as well as a teacher of high school chemistry and biology, prior to entering the health care field, allows him to approach the training of clinics and providers about toxicology testing, in a non threatening manner. He believes in partnering with clients in a manner which clearly defines why they should use Industry Diagnostic Lab Partners as their toxicology lab. His open communication style of leadership creates an environment of cooperation with the lab professionals, which produces quality results and service for clients.
When not at ILDP, Lance can be found mentoring local high school coaches and athletes. He and his wonderful wife Kay also spend time enjoying their children and grandchildren.
