Escalera Health

OLD Covid-19 Testing

Escalera Health is proud to offer drive-through, on-location, and appointment-based COVID-19/Coronavirus testing to Pima County and the Greater Tucson Metro area. Escalera Health provides complete medical screenings and laboratory testing for COVID19/Coronavirus by AccuReference at your desired testing location.

Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing

Escalera Health offers drive-through swab testing (UTM/E-Swab & Rapid tests) for COVID-19 at our testing site which is located at 2224 N. Craycroft Road Suite 100.

Drive-through testing is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Testing is first come, first serve and you do not need an appointment to get tested at the tent. Escalera Health will bill the test through your insurance, at no cost to you if it is a contracted plan. Self-pay options are available to those without insurance.

Rapid tests are available for $175 – we accept cash, check and most major credit cards.

Availability of tests may be limited.

How Does Drive-Through Testing Work?

One of our health providers will come out and meet you in your car, wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment, and then do a quick focus history. We will then administer a brief nasal swab to take a sample. The entire process takes about 10 minutes, from screening questions to the nasal swab.

The UTM/E-Swab tests will have results within 3-5 days. You can expect to hear back from Escalera over the phone with your results and medical treatment options if necessary.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

Escalera Health offers the COVID-19 antibody test in our clinic by appointment only. This test involves a short blood draw and will have results within 2-3 days.
