UPDATE: The Health Care District of Palm Beach County has
been monitoring the latest information and guidelines on the Coronavirus
(COVID-19) in coordination with the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) and the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Health Care
District and its health facilities have taken a proactive approach to ensure
that required preparations and protocols are in place to provide timely, safe
and quality care for our patients.

Healey Center until further notice.
The Health Care District of Palm Beach County will begin phone
screening for residents with COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever and cough,
who call 561-642-1000 on Monday, March 30th from 8 am to 5 pm. Health
Care District physicians, nurses and medical support staff will be
answering the phones daily during these hours Monday through Friday in
support of Palm Beach County’s planned test site at the FITTEAM Ballpark
of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach.
If you have a scheduled appointment, please follow these instructions.
During these phone screenings, patients of any age who meet the testing
criteria will be scheduled for appointments for drive-thru testing at
the ballpark. Hotline representatives will conduct the phone screenings
in English, Spanish and Creole. Those who come for testing without an
appointment will be turned away. The Health Care District will continue
to make appointments for the drive-thru testing as long as test kits,
PPE and staffing are available.

Management and the Florida Department of Health for Palm Beach County to
