CANO HEALTH URGES COVID-19 TESTING FOR ALL PATIENTS; OFFERS IN-HOME APPOINTMENTS

MIAMI, June 23, 2020 – As the number of COVID-19 cases reaches record highs in Florida , Cano Health, LLC, a leading population health management company and operator of primary care medical centers, today announced that it is urging its patient base to undergo testing in an effort to curb the surge of the dangerous pandemic.

Cano Health medical centers throughout South Florida, Tampa-Hillsborough and Orlando-Kissimmee are open for PCR testing of its patients. PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is a molecular test that looks for signs of active viral infection. If individuals are unable to visit a center, the company can send a clinician to the home within 24 hours to perform the test.*

“The medical profession has made much progress on COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment in these few months,” said Dr. Marlow Hernandez, Cano Health CEO. “Testing is essential to slowing coronavirus’ spread.”

Cano Health reports a COVID-19 mortality rate that is significantly better than the age-gender adjusted Florida state average. Promising patient outcomes are attributed to early diagnosis and a multifaceted approach to treatment.
