PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — Regional healthcare provider PanCare announced today it is expanding COVID-19 testing to anyone in an at-risk category, even if they aren’t showing symptoms.

St. Joe officials then announced an even bigger donation to the area’s largest healthcare provider.
“We decided to not only get this check to PanCare today but we’ve also decided to give $200,000 to Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation, for their Bay, Walton, and Gulf County locations as well as point Washington Medical Clinic, $35,000 for them for their testing needs as well.” said St. Joe Community Foundation Executive Director, April Wilkes.
