Peachtree Immediate Care Opens New COVID-19 Rapid Testing Site in Athens, GA
Company to Test 200 Patients a Day at Site Donated by Power Partners
By: CRH Healthcare
The new space, which will allow the clinic to test up to 200 patients a day, was donated for use by Power Partners, a leading manufacturer of distribution transformers based in Athens. "We would like to thank Power Partners for generously allowing us to use their space for COVID-19 testing," said Bill Miller, CEO of CRH Healthcare. "This new site will allow us to test four times the number of patients we were previously able to test at our urgent care center in Athens."
The site, which will be drive-thru only for safety purposes, will be open Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm starting Monday, August 17th. To prevent traffic issues and long wait-times, registration will be required in advance. Appointments can be made at https://www.peachtreemed.com/
The rapid tests being performed will allow patients to receive their results during their visit. These tests, which have the FDA's Emergency Use Authorization, take just twenty minutes, though patients should keep in mind the total drive-thru time may as much as an hour, depending on how many patients are on-site at that time.
Peachtree Immediate Care has tested more than 125,000 patients since the pandemic began and is making plans for further testing to help Georgians stay safe and manage their health, whether they are asymptomatic or symptomatic. "Providing COVID-19 testing for the Athens community remains a priority for us," Miller said.
