Headquartered in Fort Myers, NeoGenomics serves over 600,000 patients each year and is on a mission to serve one million patients annually by 2028.

“With studies suggesting that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime,1 our role as a leading oncology testing services company is more crucial than ever,” said Chris Smith, CEO at NeoGenomics. “Receiving this proclamation from the mayor is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teammates in realizing our goals. At NeoGenomics, we strive to deliver cancer testing options and information that empowers providers to better diagnose and treat their patients.”

Mayor Anderson will formally announce the proclamation during the City Council meeting on June 17.
