MIAMI, April 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Solis Health Plans, a Medicare Advantage Plan, is pleased to join the effort to bring COVID-19 testing to South Florida senior citizens. Under the leadership of Former State Senator Rene Garcia and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Esteban Bovo, Solis and PrimeCare Family Medical Centers are providing staff and personal protective equipment to assist with coronavirus testing at Amelia Earhart Park in the City of Hialeah as of Thursday, April 2nd.
The COVID-19 drive-thru testing center will focus on testing residents aged 65 or older who are experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus. Testing will only be offered for those who meet the criteria and have scheduled an appointment in advance by calling 305-COVID-19 (305-268-4319). The call center opens at 9:00 a.m. daily and will remain open until the appointment slots for the following day are filled. Individuals arriving in cars will be accepted. No walk-ins, bikes or mopeds are allowed. Individuals being tested must sit by a working window and only two individuals are permitted in the vehicle: driver and passenger. The test kits have been donated by Testing Matters.
"Solis Health Plans is dedicated to helping the South Florida community get access to coronavirus testing," said Solis Health Plans CEO Daniel Hernandez. "Our top priority is getting our community the medical attention they need as quickly and easily as possible. We thank former Senator Garcia and Commissioner Bovo for allowing us to participate in this important endeavor."
Individuals with an appointment should enter Amelia Earhart Park (401 E 65th Street, Hialeah, FL 33013) through the entrance at Palm Avenue and 65th Street in Hialeah. The testing will take place at the rotunda immediately adjacent to the entrance.
