Holy Cross Urgent Care Now Offers Rapid COVID-19 Molecular Testing

 Results from Abbott’s Rapid COVID-19 Molecular Test are ready in as little as 15 minutes
 
April 14 2021 - Fort Lauderdale area residents now have access to Rapid COVID-19 Molecular testing at our Holy Cross Urgent Care locations at 3481 N. University Drive in Coral Springs and 1115 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. The Abbott Rapid COVID-19 Molecular Test not only delivers test results in minutes, the test is also accurate and convenient for the patient. This is a change from prior procedure because swabs collected at the Urgent Care Centers will no longer be sent to the main lab for PCR testing. Anyone that qualifies under CDC guidelines can have the same-day test. 
 
The Rapid COVID-19 Molecular Test from Abbott has been deemed both safe and effective. Test samples are processed with the same innovative technology used to diagnose patients with the flu and strep throat. 
 
Open 7 days a week, walk-ins are always welcome at Holy Cross Urgent Care’s two conveniently located centers at 3481 N. University Drive in Coral Springs and 1115 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. 
 
In addition to Rapid COVID-19 testing, Holy Cross Urgent Care continues to deliver the highest level of care for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses including:
Ear and eye infection
Minor cuts
Sprains and strains
Simple fractures
Sore throat, fever, aches
Minor skin infections
Vomiting and diarrhea 
 
 
Holy Cross Urgent Care is committed to maintaining CDC-recommended COVID-19 protocols. Below is a list of some of the processes in place to keep patients safe at Holy Cross Urgent Care centers: 
• Virtual Care 
• Enhanced cleaning and disinfection 
• No-touch sign-in 
• Pre-visit temperature checks 
• Social distancing 
Masking 
 
Holy Cross Urgent Care locations are open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. M-F, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sat. and Sun. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
