vybe urgent care Re-Opens in Center City East

Philadelphia, PA – August 25, 2020 – vybe urgent care, the leading independent operator of urgent care centers in the Greater Philadelphia area, announces the reopening of our center on Market Street just steps away from Independence Hall in Center City, Philadelphia. The Center City East center is located at 618 Market Street and will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekends beginning on September 12th.

The Center City East center closed in March to help consolidate PPE at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. For patients with symptoms, vybe offers telemedicine visits from the comfort of home. In addition, all vybe locations are offering a full range of urgent care services, including COVID-19 testing inside or on a drive-up basis:

  • Lab-based PCR genetic tests to detect active infection
  • Quidel’s rapid antigen test that detects active infection through virus proteins
  • Serological tests that detect antibodies from a prior infection

vybe has carefully designed safety precautions to meet or exceed CDC and state guidelines.

  • Advance online registration to reduce time in the center
  • All patients must wear masks, and our team wears PPE at all times
  • Screening all patients for symptoms and possible COVID-19 exposure
  • Patients are taken directly to exam rooms for registration
  • Waiting areas arranged for social distancing
  • Enhanced cleaning of exam rooms and equipment after each patient
  • Frequent deep cleaning throughout the center

“Patients need to care of their health, especially during this time of COVID-19 concerns.” said vybe urgent care President Peter Hotz. “We’re allowing patients to register online before they visit to help minimize contact. We believe everyone deserves great care—and we will gladly welcome walk-ins or symptomatic patients who prefer to start with a telemedicine visit.

vybe is fully accredited by the Urgent Care Association (UCA), which is the highest level of distinction for urgent care centers and ensures high levels of patient safety and quality.
