Henderson, N.C. [June 22, 2020] Over the past month, MAKO Medical Laboratories added over 150 people to meet the growing demand for COVID-19 testing in the Unites States. A significant portion of that demand is from companies restarting operations. MAKO Medical is providing on-site staffing and mobile testing services at businesses as employers bring employees back to work safely.
“We have clients who have plants with hundreds, if not thousands of employees. They want to safely restart operations and have decided to bring MAKO Medical lab professionals on site to provide a broad range of medical services, largely pertaining to COVID-19,” says Josh Arant, MAKO Medical COO.
Arant says the guidelines are evolving toward more testing. “States are beginning to advise senior care employers, manufactures, and others to test their front line staff routinely to ensure resident safety and prevent potential spread of the virus in high risk populations.”
MAKO Medical’s mobile units include experienced phlebotomists who are able to provide COVID-19 testing in a familiar environment to help make employees feel more at ease.
“The more we can test, the more we can get in there and help local governments, help businesses, help manufacturers, help the meat packing plants so they can tell if their employees are infected or not,” said Steve Hoover, MAKO Medical’s Vice President of Laboratory Operations.
“What is the cost of someone getting sick? What is the cost of lost job time, shutting down a facility and cleaning the facility? Testing employees is an investment in people’s health and their businesses,” says Arant.
