Immediate Care Launches Mobile Van Service to Expand COVID Testing

Immediate Care Launches Mobile Van Service to Expand COVID Testing

Companies, Organizations, Government Can Now Schedule On-Site Testing, Anywhere in New Jersey

RED BANK, NJ – January 14, 2021 – As the demand for COVID testing in New Jersey grows – with hospitalizations reaching all-time highs – Immediate Care is now taking its service on the road.

The Red Bank-based company, which has been erecting mobile testing centers in parking lots to test thousands of people a day, is introducing a fully customized  commercial van as a mobile testing site.  The van, which is staffed by a nurse practitioner, a medical assistant and a driver, is now making scheduled stops throughout central New Jersey, collecting nasal and saliva swabs of people where they live and work.

“When we built the mobile testing centers, we quickly realized that they can’t be easily relocated,” said Sal Cannizzaro, CEO of Immediate Care. “So, we thought the best way to accommodate the smaller groups at municipal facilities or  such business  locations as restaurants, offices or warehouses,  would be through some innovation. That’s where the idea for the mobile medical van was born.”

The van follows specific design protocols, such as providing additional heat, air conditioning and a fan for consistent positive air flow. There are also added safety precautions, such as a camera that shows who is approaching the vehicle, along with exterior lighting, and an electrical inverter to run the  laptop, monitor and printer.

The van operates from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, making scheduled stops in Monmouth County and other parts of Central Jersey.  Cannizzaro noted the van could serve the entire state, but there has been such a need in Monmouth County that it has yet to travel very far.

“Wherever the van goes, there is always a line waiting for us,” he said, noting there are typically three to five stops per day.

There is no cost to schedule the van to visit a place of business, government, neighborhood or organization. There is also no cost for the tests, which are covered by health insurance or federal funding.
