As the demand for COVID testing in New Jersey grows, Immediate Care is now taking its service on the road.
The Red Bank-based company, which has been erecting mobile testing centers in parking lots to test thousands of people a day, is introducing a fully customized commercial van as a mobile testing site, according to a press release.
The van, which is staffed by a nurse practitioner, a medical assistant and a driver, is now making scheduled stops throughout central New Jersey, collecting nasal and saliva swabs of people where they live and work.
“When we built the mobile testing centers, we quickly realized they can’t be easily relocated,” said Sal Cannizzaro, CEO of Immediate Care. “So, we thought the best way to accommodate the smaller groups at municipal facilities or business locations such as restaurants, offices or warehouses would be through some innovation. That’s where the idea for the mobile medical van was born.”
The van operates from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, making scheduled stops in Monmouth County and other parts of central New Jersey. There is no cost to schedule the van to visit a place of business or government, or a neighborhood organization. There is also no cost for the tests, which are covered by health insurance or federal funding, according to the press release.
