AMI currently has 800 employees across 18 locations conducting 250,000 tests per week for on-campus students and staff as wells as homebound special needs individuals.
“We are proud during this ongoing pandemic to be able to help the state of California open its school doors knowing that its students, educators, and staff have the best chance of remaining COVID-free with a robust testing and vaccination solution,” said Tony Campos, COO of Maclean Health. “This partnership enables us to apply all preventive measures to make sure that California’s students, teachers, school administrators and faculty, as well as communities at large, are safe.”
