As the Maricopa County Health Department has identified Tolleson as a Hot Spot, Mayor Anna Tovar found it critical to continue to bring convenient testing sites to Tolleson residents and for the entire West Valley, so people can make a well-informed decision regarding their health.
â€œPeople need to continue to have access to convenient testing, as the majority of our Tolleson residents are essential workers, having a 24/7 testing site available will provide them the flexibility they need to accommodate their work schedules,â€ shared Mayor Anna Tovar.
Embry Womenâ€™s Health will be staffing the 24/7 testing site in Tolleson and will remain in Tolleson as long as there is a need. "We are extremely excited to partner with the city of Tolleson to expand access to testing to residents of the West Valley. Mayor Tovar and her entire staff have been instrumental in the development of this site and we thank them for their partnership," stated Raymond Embry from Embry Women's Health. People will be able to come at any time to be tested and can expect to get results back in 2-4 business days. Embry Womenâ€™s Health is working with two laboratories, Northwest Pathology and LabCorp, to ensure they can provide quick results.
