Your safety and well-being are our top priorities as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic.
Drive-Up COVID-19 Testing
Testing is by appointment for our patients and the public — with next-day results. This includes people who have symptoms or were exposed, as well as those who need testing for travel, school or other reasons.
Appointments and Your Safety
Several safeguards help protect our patients and staff, including universal masking, frequent cleaning, entrance screenings and social distancing in registration and waiting areas. We’ve also increased video visits.
