流動快速檢測中心 (MRTC)

為了可以很好的監控並追蹤新冠病毒案例,以便紐約重啓經濟,亞美醫師協會與贊助合作夥伴BioReference、Quest Diagnostics,帝國藍十字盾健保公司、飛達利斯健保公司、MJHS和Hoolime共同計劃並籌備了新冠病毒流動檢測站項目,用以篩查紐約市的病人。 2020年4月22日,亞美醫師協會正式啟動了移動快速測試中心(MRTC),並得到了眾多官員的熱烈支持,其中包括紐約州眾議員金兌錫、美國國會眾議員孟昭文以及紐約州參議員劉醇逸。

這個項目在最初仍被認為是一個概念,但是隨著病毒在流行高峰期不斷增強的趨勢下,已經逐漸發展為大規模的行動。在亞美醫協董事會和行政部門的帶領下,我們接受了這個挑戰,將檢測人員帶到了原本可能無法進行測試的社區民眾之中。從那時起,在亞美醫師協會基金會的資助下,提供了數千次的測試。但是,由於資源和資金有限,董事會和管理層決定將我們的重點重新轉移至幫助病人、醫生和社區的其他項目之中。況且,我們看到政府和多個社區機構目前正在紐約市全面提供免費的病毒測試站,方便更多市民可以無需預約就進行測試。

感謝亞美醫協的醫生會員為幫助病人獲得所需測試而做出的努力。同時,非常感謝在前線工作的亞美醫協護理團隊,風雨無阻地為社區中的病人進行測試。病人如需就近前往測試地點,請瀏覽網站  NYC Health + Hospitals: COVID-19 Testing Sites .
