All five of the Milwaukee FQHCs (Community Health Centers) are working collaboratively with the Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association and the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership to increase critical COVID 19 testing capacity across the city of Milwaukee. We are hopeful that access will continue to grow, as test kits and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) become more available. Community Health Centers are now reaching out to their current patients and as their capacity grows, will be reaching out to their neighborhood community partners. We appreciate the support we have received from our public and private partners to make this happen and we look forward to continuing to serve as critical safety net providers through this pandemic.
If you have fever, chills, body aches, cough or other respiratory symptoms, please call (414) 383-9526 (Press 1 for Medical Clinic then when prompted Press 4 for COVID-19 Screening/Testing) to speak with a health care professional from GLIIHC, or reach out to your preferred Community Health Center for further guidance and information on testing.
GLIIHC will screen all individuals prior to setting a date and time for testing. All testing will be coordinated to occur in the afternoons. This will allow us to limit exposure to our clients as well as staff, doing our part to #flattenthecurve.
