Thanks to In-House Testing All Patients Have Their Results
We are happy to announce that for the first time since we started COVID-19 testing, our community’s backlog of pending tests has been cleared and all patients have received their results. The introduction of in-house testing last week was instrumental in clearing the backlog, and our laboratory teams have worked around-the-clock to provide faster results. Moving forward, we should continue to be able to return most test results within 24 hours.
Our Personal Protective Equipment Supply is Stable
We are working closely with established supply partners and the state’s emergency management team to ensure our personal protective equipment (PPE) supply is stocked. At this time, we are not critically low on PPE, but continue to accept donations through the Lee Health Foundation. PPE donations to support our Lee Health heroes can be delivered to the Lee Health Foundation office at 9800 S. HealthPark Dr., Suite 406. Please call us ahead at 343-6950 to arrange a time to drop off the supplies.
