Fetter Health Care Network announces COVID-19 schedule updates for week of June 29

On Monday, June 29 Fetter Health Care Network (FHCN), announced updates to its upcoming COVID-19 testing schedule. The Federally Qualified Health Center has partnered with local government municipalities to host mobile COVID-19 respiratory collection test sites throughout the Lowcountry. The testing sites rotate to different locations throughout the Lowcountry each day, providing free and accessible walk-up and drive-up tests to community members.

Due to an increased volume in patients, FHCN has announced it will be moving its testing site for Wednesday, July 1 to Trident Technical College. The community health center had previously scheduled testing for this date to be held at Trident United Way and will now be moving its site to Trident Technical College in order to accommodate the increased patient sign-ups for testing. FHCN’s full upcoming schedule includes the following:

Fetter Health Care Network mobile COVID-19 testing schedule:

Date Time Location Address

Walk-up and drive-up testing is available at each site. Same-day testing is available; however, individuals are highly encouraged to get screened before arriving for quicker service by visiting FetterCovid19Screening.org or calling 1-800-365-7410.

Fetter Health Care Network Receives Emergency Grant from Direct Relief to Strengthen the Healthcare Safety Net covering Charleston, Dorchester, Colleton and Berkeley Counties

Fetter Health Care Network (FHCN) announced today an infusion of $50,000 in emergency grant funding from the medical aid organization Direct Relief, in partnership with the National Association of Community Health Centers.

FHCN was among 518 federally qualified health centers to receive funding this week through Direct Relief’s $25 million COVID-19 Fund for Community Health, which recognizes the profound effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the finances, services, staff and patients of community health centers.

FHCN will use the funds to help support the cost of health care expansion for vulnerable populations, as well as the operational expenses for COVID-19 testing sites in Charleston, Dorchester, Colleton and Berkeley counties.

“Access to primary care is what keeps people healthy and out of the hospital, and the frontline work of Fetter Health Care Network and other nonprofit community health centers across the U.S. is more critical than ever with the onset of COVID-19,” said Direct Relief President and CEO Thomas Tighe. “Direct Relief is doing everything possible to bolster the work and support the staffs at the safety-net health facilities on which so many patients and their families rely for excellent care and trust for advice in this public health emergency.”

Nearly 30 million (1 in 12) of the country’s most vulnerable residents — including 1 in 3 individuals living in poverty, 1 in 5 Medicaid beneficiaries, and 1 in 9 children — rely on federally qualified health centers like Fetter Health Care Network for their health care. That number is expected to rise as more people lose employer-sponsored insurance.

“We are grateful for this critical and immediate support as community health centers work hard to keep communities safe during an unprecedented pandemic,” said Tom Van Coverden, President & CEO of the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). “We are also deeply appreciative of our longstanding partnership with Direct Relief in these uncertain times and their efforts to ensure that health centers confronting multiple challenges in underserved communities have the resources when and where they need them. We know that many donors and contributors have helped to make this fund possible, and we further extend our appreciation to all of them.”
