Centura Health Offers Testing for First Responders

(ENGLEWOOD, COLO.) Emergency medical services (EMS), fire fighters, and law enforcement play a vital role in responding to requests for assistance, triaging patients, and providing emergency medical treatment and transport for ill persons. Centura Health is excited to announce we are now offering COVID-19 testing for our symptomatic First Responders across Colorado.

“We’ve recognized the need for additional COVID-19 testing since the onset of this pandemic and are grateful that we now have the capacity to provide this testing to our first responder community. The value of knowing is priceless for first responders,” stated Dr. Shauna Gulley, Chief Clinical Officer for Centura Health. “Our partners on the front line are presented with unique challenges because of the nature of their work and we want to ensure that they have the support and information they need to protect themselves, their loved ones and the community.”

To begin accepting our community partners, Responder Agencies interested in offering this to their teams should email: CenturaLovesFirstResponders@centura.org to receive needed forms to begin these visits. These first responders will need to bring a special form with them when coming for their test.

We are pleased that we are able to offer seven locations across Colorado, Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
