WEST LINN, Ore., Dec. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care announces the reopening of its center at 21900 Willamette Drive, Suite 209 West Linn, Oregon which will serve as a COVID-19 rapid testing center, offering tests to those who do not have COVID-19 symptoms with results in approximately 15 minutes. The West Linn center will be open seven days a week from 8am-8pm, with the ability to save your spot online 72 hours in advance.
The reopening of this center will greatly benefit the community by creating an additional access point for patients seeking COVID-19 testing. The West Linn center, along with five other Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers in Sherwood, Salmon Creek, Raleigh Hills, Camas and Pearl, exclusively provide COVID-19 testing to support the significant and increasing need for testing in these communities.
"We are proud to provide additional access points for the community to receive rapid COVID-19 testing," said David Tep, Market President of Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care. "We were the first to offer rapid COVID-19 testing at scale in the Pacific Northwest and continue to be focused on the commitment to helping this region stop the spread of the virus."
Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care now operates six centers dedicated to asymptomatic COVID-19 testing, and nine centers which provide non-life threatening illness and injury care. For patients experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, Virtual Visit evaluations are offered from the comfort and safety of home.
In further support of access to local, convenient urgent care, all 15 Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers and Virtual Visit services have expanded hours to 8am-8pm, seven days a week.
