In an effort to enable more patients to be tested for COVID-19, thus reducing risk of community spread, Broward Health opened a mobile testing unit on Wednesday, April 8 at Central Broward Park & Broward County Stadium (3700 N.W. 11th Place, Lauderhill, FL 33311). Collections will be taken from 9AM to 5PM daily. To meet criteria, individuals must be:
Prescreened and meet CDC and DOH testing guidelines
Prequalified with a prescription
Preregistered to receive an appointment through the Broward Health call center at 954-320-5730.
If patients do not have a primary care physician and need assistance, they can access Broward Health's new BHealthy Now app that enables a patient to obtain a virtual health screening from a board-certified physician without leaving home. Physicians on-call will screen patients, assign risk, answer questions, and recommend next steps, such as prescribing a COVID-19 screening. Visit BrowardHealth.org/COVIDApp for instructions on how to download the app and connect with physicians. The app can also be downloaded directly from the app store by searching for "Amwell." To find the Broward Health COVID practice, enter the service key "BROWARD" during or after enrollment.
