Health Care District Opens New Testing Site

Belle Glade, FL – The Health Care District of Palm Beach County announced a new COVID-19 testing site opening in Belle Glade tomorrow. The District’s mobile health clinic will provide rapid antigen testing while stationed outside the county’s only public hospital, Lakeside Medical Center, located at 39200 Hooker Highway.

“As the Omicron variant becomes more dominant and COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to rise across the state, the Health Care District wants to enhance testing during the holidays to help take pressure off the Emergency Room in Belle Glade,” said Belma Andrić, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer at the District. “We’ll be providing people with testing and if needed, treatment, thanks to AMR.”

American Medical Response (AMR) will be onsite beginning Friday, Dec. 24 providing Regeneron monoclonal antibody treatment to patients who tested positive for COVID-19 and meet the criteria to receive it.

No appointment is needed and walk-ups are welcome.

Additionally, the District continues to provide COVID-19 vaccines to patients during regular doctors’ office visits at all of the nine C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinic sites across the county, which are located in areas of need. Appointments can be made by calling 561-642-1000.

One of our mobile clinics is also stationed at the Lantana Clinic Parking Lot at 1250 Southwinds Drive for walk-up COVID-19 vaccines available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The mobile clinic will be closed Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) and New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31).
