New site at Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise, Florida to offer Fast PCR and rapid covid test results in minutes. FastLabs will continue expanding its locations and aims to offer COVID-19 vaccines as part of its phase two plans
MIAMI – (April 5, 2021) FastLabs’ MD RV, the leading rapid medical testing company, has partnered with Miami-based giant REEF Technology to expand its rapid COVID-19 testing. The first combined location will be at Sawgrass Mills Mall located at 12801 W Sunrise Blvd, Sunrise, FL 33323 (adjacent to Primark) and joins the other FastLabs sites located at The Falls Mall and at the service station next to Kendall Regional Hospital in Miami. The Sawgrass Mills site, opening on April 5th, will offer fast PCR tests, rapid antigen tests, rapid antibody tests and complete flu panel with results given as quickly as a few minutes.
The site is ideal for patients looking for the convenience of results within minutes without having to get out of their cars or wait in long lines. All sites are cash-operated and offer all paperwork for insurance reimbursement. Tests will be administered using the highly accurate nasal swab or finger prick method. Appointments are scheduled via FastLabs’ website www.fastlabsmed.com.
“We’re excited to increase access to rapid testing through REEF HEALTH’s locations, which provide us quick, scalable options for expansion,” said Dr. Raul Cruz, Chief Medical Officer of FastLabs. “As the demand grows, we’re prepared to provide the highest standard in point-of-care testing and diagnostic solutions and hope to expand into vaccinations during Phase 2 of our partnership with REEF.”
The locations and logistics are made possible through REEF Technology’s healthcare arm, REEF HEALTH, which uses its network of more than 5,000 parking locations, staffing and infrastructure to help healthcare providers reach more patients. This allows COVID-19 testing sites to operate with speed and efficiency while minimizing the risk of exposure and transmission.
“Our partnership with FastLabs speaks directly to REEF’s goal to bring essential medical services closer to places people actually live,” said Bob Griffing, SVP – Healthcare at REEF Technology. “We’re challenging traditional ideas of care delivery and access, using unconventional venues to improve the patient experience, bring healthcare to patients’ blocks and build healthier neighborhoods.”
Consistent testing with rapid technologies has repeatedly reduced COVID-19 infection rates by 80% in recent studies, emphasizing the importance of frequency and quick result turnaround times – both of which remain at the core of the FastLabs’ mission. The company’s expansive and effective rapid testing strategy includes rapid antibody, rapid antigen, and rapid molecular testing, all designated with Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Traditional point-of-care services are a thing of the past and health transparency is at the fingertips of the consumer. FastLabs is committed to convenient testing sites and reliable answers during uncertain times while operating in compliance with all local, state, and federal laws, rules, and regulations. Additionally, all patients receive the necessary paperwork for their insurance reimbursement needs, further reducing barriers to rapid access and facilitating access to the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund, where private insurers must waive a member’s payments for COVID-19 diagnostic testing and related services.
