Health Gauge's first Illinois drive-through location at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg is opening Tuesday, Dec. 22, and is now taking appointments for those who want to receive rapid, same-day results.

Located in the G Lot, on the south side of the mall near Sears, most test results are provided in less than 60 minutes, all without leaving your car.


"We are looking forward to bringing the ease and affordability of our rapid drive-through COVID-19 testing to Illinois for the first time," said Health Gauge president and co-founder Scott McGlothlen. "Our rapid testing requires no pre-qualification, allowing anyone with or without insurance to receive affordable, same-day bookings and results to provide peace of mind to everyone as we quickly approach Christmas and New Year's."

Health Gauge offers:

• No pre-qualification, no symptoms required;

• 96.7 percent accuracy;

• Affordable $99/test with cash or online payment;

• Rapid results (same day, often under 60 minutes);

• Less invasive nasal swab;

• Same day bookings available.

With 20 years of preventative ultrasound screenings and corporate wellness, Health Gauge (formerly known as Stroke Detection Plus) teamed up in early May with the state of Iowa to help staff and work the Test Iowa Strikeforce team. From there, Health Gauge started to provide its own COVID-19 tests as a complement to the overwhelming demand in Midwest states, with locations in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Minnesota.

Woodfield Mall will be the seventh Health Gauge location and will be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Testing will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Christmas Eve and closed on Christmas Day.

The goal of Health Gauge is to provide customized wellness solutions that identify common but serious health risks in order to prevent future chronic illness and disability. The comprehensive wellness program is designed to control costs, save time and save lives. Learn more by visiting
