Expanded COVID-19 Testing in the City of St. Louis
An estimated 1,000-2,000 tests per day will be available through two new partnerships.
Additional COVID-19 testing services are now available in the City of St. Louis thanks to two new partnerships developed by the City of St. Louis Department of Health. The new partnerships have been created to help meet the increased demand for COVID-19 testing in the City.
One partnership is with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Centene Corporation and other public health stakeholders. This association will have the capacity to offer approximately 500 to 1,000 tests a day. The other partnership is with Nomi Health and will add an additional 500 to 1,000 tests a day to a testing clinic at 6161 Delmar Blvd, St. Louis, MO, 63112 with additional testing centers scheduled to open in the near future.
“I’m excited about our two new COVID-19 testing partnerships,” says Dr. Mati Hlatshawayo Davis, Director of Health for the City of St. Louis. “It comes at a time when our hospital systems are facing a capacity crisis and these partnerships can relieve them of some of the testing demand they are experiencing. Testing for COVID-19 is an essential tool to keeping people safe, reducing the spread of the virus, and keeping our schools and businesses open.”
“Our new partnership with the City of St. Louis Department of Health, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and other public health partners to provide COVID-19 testing is another opportunity for the Urban League to champion the well-being of valued members of our community,” said Michael McMillan, President and CEO of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis.
“As part of our core mission, Nomi Health believes everyone should have access to affordable and hassle-free health care,” said Joshua Walker, co-founder, and COO, Nomi Health. “While testing demand increases across the nation, we are honored to continue serving the people of St. Louis with our operational expertise and safe testing solutions. Nomi Health is proud to partner with the City of St. Louis Department of Health and we are looking forward to expanding efforts as we navigate life in the pandemic."
