Our goal is to test 1,200 people in St. Lucie County in 2018
From the test to diagnosis - Our team will help you navigate the entire treatment process.
MSCC is doing HIV, Hepatits C and Syphilis rapid testing as an extension of the St. Lucie County Health Department to better identify and treat those infected.
Our team is out community testing at Pridefest in St. Lucie West this year. It is a simple rapid 15 minute test, done with a tiny finger prick.
Know Your Status
The rapid HIV test is 99.7% accurate. The rapid Hepatitis C test is also very accurate and gives results in under 20 minutes.
What About Treatment?
While there is not yet a cure, there are treatments available today that help those who are reactive, or positive, live longer and healthier lives.
What is the cost?
At Midway Specialty Care Center, a 501 c-3 non-profit organization, we provide HIV treatment and clinical trials to give our patients access to cutting-edge advancements in healthcare. We will work to provide you with treatment through your insurance company, or if you qualify, for a free or reduced cost through grants and federal programs.
What if I get a reactive test or positive HIV test?
The first step is to confirm a reactive test with a FREE 2nd blood test. You will get these results in 7-15 days and begin treatment if the tests confirms you have contracted the virus.
What About Treatment?
While there is not yet a cure, there are treatments available today that help those who are reactive, or positive, live longer and healthier lives. Even if you do not feel sick, it is important to consult a health care provider about the best course of treatment. Once you begin treatment, keep taking your medications exactly as prescribed to avoid developing a resistance that may prevent medications from continuing to fight the virus or infection.
MSCC will give access to current enrolling clinical trials to all patients receiving care who qualify. This gives them access to potentially free medicine. We have a full-time team dedicated to finding innovative care for local residents.
