MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Regional One Health and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center are partnering up to help COVID-19 patients who may be experiencing long-term symptoms of the virus.

The pair says services will also be available for anyone who has tested positive for the virus but has not experienced any symptoms.

“This clinic, together with the inpatient COVID unit at Regional One Health, will establish a COVID medical home that will provide longitudinal follow up and care for patients who have had COVID-19,” said G.
