FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Primary Health Solutions Announces Both Covid-19 Testing and Antibody Testing Now Available

New Services Will Reduce Risk and Meet Community Need

Butler & Montgomery Co., OH -

 

In an effort to meet community need for expanded Covid-19 testing, a few weeks ago Primary Health Solutions began setting up mobile testing sites throughout the area. The sites have provided a safe process for those who are symptomatic or have had an exposure to be tested while remaining inside their own vehicle. The organization will continue to conduct the drive-through testing sites several times per week at varying locations. Mobile testing events have taken place at sites provided by community partners and in the parking lots at several PHS health center locations.The organization has plans to conduct testing in Hamilton/Fairfield, Middletown and Dayton communities on a weekly basis.

 

For those who need to be tested for an active case of Covid-19, individuals need to call either 513-454-1111 or 937-535-5060 to be scheduled. They will be given a specific time and location for the test to be performed.

 

Beginning Saturday, May 23rd, Primary Health Solutions will be offering Covid-19 Antibody testing at their Express Care locations. The test will be administered by a PHS provider. It is a simple finger-prick test that will detect if the individual has developed antibodies in response to an infection. Results are available within 15 minutes.

 

Here's how the process works:

 

  • Express Care locations are open for walk-ins from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 7 days per week
  • 903 NW Washington Blvd., Hamilton
  • 1036 S. Verity Pkwy., Middletown
  • 300 Forest Ave., Dayton
  • Patients must have no symptoms, and will be screened at the door
  • Insurance will be billed, if patient has coverage. Photo ID required at time of visit
  • If patient has no insurance, proof of income will be required

 

Primary Health Solutions is accepting new patients, accepts most insurance plans and offers a sliding fee scale for uninsured individuals. Services provided include primary care, women's health, behavioral health, vision and dental care. For more information please call 513-454-1111, 937-535-5060 or go to: myprimaryhealthsolutions.org.
