COVID TESTING AND VACCINE UPDATE MARCH 17, 2021

COVID TESTING

If you are exhibiting symptoms of fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, diarrhea, vomiting, loss of smell or taste, and/or headache please call 815-772-5511    A receptionist will schedule an appointment and you will then be transferred to a medical provider for screening.

COVID VACCINES

We have openings next week! Call 815-772-5537 to schedule your appointment!

We are now vaccinating ANYONE over the age of 65. You do not have to be an established patient at our hospital. We are also taking names for the 1b+ group ages 16-64 that have a specific health condition that meets the 1b+ Phase identified by the CDC.  Please call 815-772-5537 to add your name to the waiting list.  One of our patient representatives will be calling to schedule your appointment.   As a reminder, the scheduling of vaccine administration is dependent upon vaccine availability.

Mobile Screening office

In order to ensure the safety of our patients, visitors, and staff we have added a mobile screening office.  This mobile unit will be easily identifiable and is located in the back of the facility.  We are asking ALL patients to call 815-772-5511 between the hours of 8:00 – 5:00 Monday through Sunday before you leave your home. A healthcare provider will screen patients over the phone and make recommendations based upon the phone screening. The Covid trailer is on the NW side of the hospital. Enter in the main entrance and follow the signs.

We want to thank our patients and community members for assisting us in keeping our communities healthy.  Both our primary and specialty clinics will continue to use telehealth options whenever appropriate to maintain the social distancing requirements.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 815-772-4003
