Reid Health Urgent Care is reopening at 1501 Chester Boulevard Monday, June 15, as part of changes that will still maintain separate operation of the Respiratory Clinic created in March to handle possible COVID-19 cases.
reflect a downturn in respiratory illness, yet still makes it possible to
continue to keep potential COVID cases separated from patients with other
urgent care needs. It also reduces traffic at Reid Medical Associates primary
care practice, which has housed urgent care and the practice since early March.
Respiratory Clinic was a very effective strategy that reduced the risk of
COVID-19 exposure from mixing patients, along with the numerous other steps we
have taken to keep all patients as safe as possible," said Misti Foust-Cofield,
Reid Health Vice President/Chief Nursing Officer.
- Relocating urgent care services that were moved to 1350 Chester in March back to 1501 Chester Boulevard.
- Continuing to test respiratory patients in the parking lot at 1501 Chester's urgent care location; and keeping respiratory patients separated from others within that facility.
- Establishing a curbside station on June 22 on the east side of Reid Orthopedic Center for by-appointment COVID-19 testing of healthy patients before a scheduled surgery or procedure.
In an effort to
address on-going concerns about the virus, anyone experiencing respiratory
symptoms can call the Reid Health Respiratory Clinic hotline at (765) 965-4200
for consultation and possibly an appointment scheduled at the clinic. Or they
can log into the Reid
HealthNOW virtual app for a COVID-19 screening/consultation and schedule an
