Neighborhood Health Center continues to closely monitor the evolving COVID-19 virus by following the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, New York State Department of Health, and Erie County Department of Health.
While still providing needed care, Neighborhood Health Center continues to work with our public health partners in efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community and to keep our patients and team safe.
COVID-19 testing is now available for our patients at our Blasdell and Mattina locations. Calling Neighborhood Health Center at (716) 875-2904 for an appointment is strongly encouraged. Tests are provided on a first come, first served basis until our testing capacity limit is reached. The test is a PCR nasal swab. COVID-19 testing locations and hours:

Call your primary care provider, stay home and limit contact with family members until advised otherwise. Together with our public health partners, you’ll be advised on recommended next steps.
Call ahead BEFORE going in person to any healthcare facility.
Don’t go to your local emergency department for COVID-19 testing. The emergency department is only for those who need the most critical care.* * If you experience chest pain, shortness of breath or other potentially life-threatening problems, go to the nearest emergency department or call 911.
