SFO launches rapid onsite COVID testing for airport employees

Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care has announced it has partnered with San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to launch the first rapid COVID-19 testing program for airport employees, the company said.

This partnership provides employee testing both on-airport and at nearby Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Bay Area care locations.

The program launched with the testing of airline flight crews in late July. The on-airport testing facility, located in the International Terminal, is currently returning test results in less than an hour, and anticipates further reductions in test result wait times.

GoHealth Urgent Care operates approximately 150 urgent care centers in the US. GoHealth Urgent Care is a TPG Growth portfolio company, the middle market and growth equity investment platform of TPG.

Dignity Health St. Mary´s Medical Center is an accredited, not-for-profit community hospital that has been caring for the people of San Francisco since 1857.
