About Vista Clinical Diagnostics
Vista Clinical Diagnostics was opened in 2003 by the founders, Davian Santana, President and Nathan Hawkins, VP. Based on the ethics of a higher quality of healthcare at affordable prices with excellent service, the company has seen tremendous growth from the little laboratory in Minneola, Florida to the outstanding corporation it is today. Vista Clinical now has now expanded to more than 50 counties in Florida servicing over 200 nursing homes and assisted living facilities as well as continuing to open patient services centers as needed.

A focus on quality care, spa-like patient service centers, affordable prices (often 70% LESS than our competitors)
The two founders, Davian and Nathan met in 1996 while working together as Medical Technologists at a hospital in Alabama. Davian had recently received an honorable discharge from the Navy and Nathan was still on active duty in the Air Force. They developed a friendship and trust which would prove to be their greatest asset in the future. After 3 years, Davian and Nathan went their separate ways to accept positions with Beckman Coulter in Orlando and Ortho Clinical Diagnostics in Pennsylvania, respectively. It was in this line of work, testing medical equipment, that Davian was given a first –hand look inside the majority of laboratory facilities in Florida. He began to notice the lack of personalized customer care compounded by high prices and long wait times. Simply put, the patient was not being put first. Most clinical laboratories talked about patient focused care, but never really did the hard work it takes to create that experience. Realizing the gap in the market, and a real opportunity to help people, Davian wanted to develop a company based on patient service. Nathan had just received a promotion and built a new home in the Northeast when he received the call from Davian to join him in Florida. He did not hesitate to respond. Shortly thereafter, Davian went north to help Nathan relocate to Central Florida and assisted him in obtaining an interim job with Beckman Coulter. The dream was birthed: VISTA CLINICAL DIAGNOSTICS, Saving Lives, One Patient at a Time.
