Neighborhood Health Center Expanded COVID-19 Testing
Neighborhood Health Center of WNY, Inc. is continuing to offer COVID-19 Testing to the general public at its Blasdell, Mattina and Northwest offices.
COVID-19 testing at Neighborhood Health Center is available for patients and anyone in the community. We encourage anyone with symptoms or a known exposure to get tested. These Neighborhood Health Center public testing sites are now available as a means to reinforce state efforts to manage the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Western New York.
Effective November 9, 2020 and during the colder winter months, all Neighborhood Health Center COVID-19 Testing will move indoors. Because of this change, calling Neighborhood Health Center at (716) 875-2904 to setup a testing appointment is strongly encouraged.
