Peachtree Immediate Care Offering Accessible COVID-19 Testing All Over Atlanta

ATLANTA – May 1, 2020 – PRLog — Peachtree Immediate Care, the exclusive urgent care partner of the Emory Healthcare Network, has converted ten (10) of its locations to drive-thru evaluation and testing sites for COVID-19. These sites are staffed by experienced clinicians, open 7 days a week, do not require an appointment or referral, and are testing both patients with symptoms of COVID-19 and others who are worried that they may have been exposed to the virus. “We have increased the access to testing in an effort to support the personal and public interest in knowing where we stand individually and as a community. As Georgia eases stay-at-home orders, it is very important that we get as many people tested as quickly as possible to reduce the spread of this virus. Accessible testing is our team’s contribution to overcoming this pandemic as a community,” stated Bill Miller, CEO of CRH Healthcare, the parent company of Peachtree Immediate Care.
