Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care teams up with MSG Sports to welcome back fans

NEW YORK, NY - Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care is working with MSG Sports to offer a convenient, trusted COVID-19 PCR testing solution for fans who have been welcomed back to Madison Square Garden. Teaming up with MSG is a natural extension of the expansive support Northwell-GoHealth providers have provided to the New York community throughout the pandemic.

“As New Yorkers look to resume some sense of normalcy – and that includes attending Knicks and Rangers games at Madison Square Garden –diagnostic testing continues to be an important way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19,” said Adam Boll, executive director of joint venture operations at Northwell Health. “That’s why MSG Sports has teamed up with Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care to provide PCR testing so fans can safely return to The Garden and enjoy a truly New York experience. The pandemic appears to be on a downswing and vaccination certainly offers protection, but testing is still the best defense to ensure that we stop the spread.”

All MSG ticket holders must receive a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours before the event and present the printed or mobile test results upon entry with a ticket. Northwell-GoHealth is ensuring that ticket holders who receive PCR testing through its custom, dedicated process will have their results in time for their MSG event.

After purchasing tickets, MSG Sports customers will receive a link to schedule a brief Virtual Visit where they will receive a clinical evaluation and a confirmed testing appointment as part of the telehealth session. Test results will be posted on a confidential Patient Portal in advance of the event.

“We are proud to support MSG Sports as it welcomes fans back to Madison Square Garden,” said Susan Bortone, senior director of operations at Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care. “The custom COVID-19 PCR testing process we have designed for MSG Sports, combined with our deep COVID-19 clinical and testing experience, should give spectators confidence that their test results will be available in time for them to enjoy game day.”

Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care Among First Approved to Deliver COVID-19 Vaccine

Vaccinating Frontline Healthcare Personnel as Part of Phase 1a

New York (Jan. 6, 2021) Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care is among the first urgent care providers in the nation approved to receive and administer the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. The New York urgent care network has already received its initial allocation and has begun vaccinating team members on the front line.

Frontline Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care personnel who opt-in have already begun to receive vaccinations, in accordance with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New York State distribution plans and prioritization requirements. This initial phase will cover all clinical personnel, including providers and frontline staff that have direct contact with patients, as well as support function personnel operating in centers.

“Today marks a new day for our healthcare workers who have served on the front lines in fighting COVID-19,” said Dr. Neal Shipley, the Medical Director of Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care. “Getting vaccinated brings the region one step closer to pre-pandemic norms, helping to further protect the healthcare system, the communities we serve, our team and our families.”

Further roll out and availability is being planned in partnership with Northwell Health and in strict compliance with CDC and New York State requirements. “We are very confident in the approved COVID-19 vaccines, with clinical trials showing their high efficacy rate,” said Dr. J.D. Zipkin, the Chief Medical Officer of GoHealth Urgent Care. “This is a moment filled with hope as we begin to turn the tide in the battle against COVID-19, and I am excited to roll up my sleeve for this vaccine.”

Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care has contributed tirelessly to the region’s response to COVID-19 since the pandemic’s initial outbreak.

“With urgent care on the front lines, we have been uniquely positioned to identify COVID-19 patients and quickly get them the care that they need,” said Adam Boll, PA, the executive director of joint venture operations at Northwell Health. “As part of the region’s healthcare system, it is vital that Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care’s frontline workers have access to the vaccine as they continue delivering care in our communities.”

In addition to COVID-19 testing, all Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care family centers treat adults and children six-months and older for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries and Cohen Children’s Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers treat babies as young as two weeks through age 26. Patients can be seen for hundreds of common health concerns, including flu, fever, asthma, allergies, minor cuts, burns, pink eye, urinary tract infections, fractures, sprains, strains and more. Those seeking care for injuries and illnesses can save a spot online and walk-ins are always welcome.
