Medical Teams International stripped and prepped one of its mobile dental vans to serve as a COVID-19 testing site to support testing at Swedish Hospital in the Issaquah Highlands. It arrived onsite Wednesday.
Medical Teams International will be doing the same to more than 12 other vans to provide increased testing stations throughout Washington, Oregon, and California. “Drive-thru screening sites are becoming a valuable resource as communities fight to reduce the burden on emergency rooms and keep hospitals safe from the spread of COVID-19,” a press release said.
Founded in 1979, Medical Teams International provides life-saving medical care for people in crisis, such as refugees and survivors of natural disasters.
