Centerville Clinics Launches COVID-19 Testing Program

Centerville Clinics has launched a COVID-19 testing program open to everyone in Fayette, Greene, and Washington counties that will include pop-up testing sites in each county in addition to the three testing sites established at clinics locations. The testing program will run for 15 months through August 2022.

There is no charge to the patient for the COVID-19 test, but the patient’s insurance company will be billed. Appointments can be made by calling the scheduling office at the Yablonski Memorial Clinic at 724-632-680. The non-invasive test takes less than five minutes and test results are ready in less than 20 minutes.

The first pop-up sites will be at NovaCare Rehabilitation offices on High Street in Waynesburg, the Mon Valley YMCA pavilion on Taylor Run Road in Monongahela, and the Uniontown Mall, with additional sites coming every month.

The three COVID-19 testing centers at Centerville Clinics are at Uniontown Family Doctors on McClellandtown Road, Washington Family Doctors on Highland Avenue, and the Joseph A. Yablonski Memorial Clinic on Old National Pike.
