CAPITAL HEALTH SCREENING CENTRE AND NATIONAL REFERENCE LABORATORY OPEN DRIVE-THROUGH COVID-19 TESTING FACILITY
Combination of convenient Abu Dhabi location and accurate
sample processing offers peace of mind to visitors
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. 27 October 2020:
Two Mubadala Healthcare facilities have joined forces to offer quick and accurate COVID-19 testing for all citizens, residents and tourists in Abu Dhabi at a cost of AED 180 per test. The drive-through lane is located in front of the Capital Health Screening Centre (CHSC) at the Al Jazira Sports Club in Muroor, and the tests are processed by National Reference Laboratory (NRL).
Hasan Jasem Al Nowais, Senior Vice President at Mubadala Healthcare, says: “While our treatment facilities are now COVID-19 free, we are continuing to support the government in its high-volume testing policy by offering another testing location to ensure convenience and quick, accurate results. We are leveraging the experience we have gained from our previous COVID-19-testing projects, and using NRL’s dedicated COVID-19 laboratory to ensure the most accurate results possible. The centre is open to all members of the public, including those on visit visas.”
Capital Health Screening Centre is leveraging its experience gained as part of the National Screening Project in the Musaffah area earlier this year, and will transfer this expertise to the new drive-through centre. Applicants will not need a prior appointment, and will have the option of receiving their results by SMS within 24 to 48 hours.
The new drive-through centre at Al Jazira Sports Club, Muroor, operates from Sundays to Thursdays, from 9am to 6pm.
