The program, “TESTED,” provides viewers with an up-close, in-depth view of how COVID-19 and the ongoing pandemic has changed Houston’s healthcare landscape.

The “TESTED” series has garnered more than 7,884,000 media impressions including television, radio and digital since it first aired in January, 2021 and was previously honored with a 2021 Silver Telly Award

“’TESTED” provides a front row seat of the hardships that our caregivers have grappled with for almost two years, since the first COVID-19 case presented at St. Luke’s Health, setting in motion unprecedented precautions, innovative research and therapies that are continuing to evolve as we learn more about this common enemy,” said Chief Executive Officer of St. Luke’s Health and Senior Vice President of CommonSpirit Health, T.
