WESTSIDE, N.C. — Westside Health Care is expanding its health testing center in Greensboro to provide more information about the coronaviruses it tests for.
The Westside Health Center in Greensburg opened Monday.
Westsides CEO John Gurney said the new testing facility will help patients and health care providers more quickly determine whether they should seek medical treatment or receive additional testing.
Gurney is also hoping the new center will make Westside safer by providing information that helps families and caregivers determine if they should be at home or if they need to stay at home.
He said the goal is to make it easier for families and providers to quickly understand how to test for the coronavia and the new coronovirus.
I think it’s going to be a really good place for us to be, especially in terms of educating the public on the importance of being very, very cautious,” Gurneys father said.
As part of its expansion, Westsides has installed a public address system that is equipped with a video warning system and a message board for patients to share information about coronaviral testing.
Westside is also testing at least three other hospitals in the state.
The center will provide a lot of data that will allow us to quickly communicate what we have found, what the risks are and what to expect in terms the next steps,” she said.
