Memorial Hospital and Manor offering drive thru outpatient COVID-19 collections.
- Memorial Hospital & Manor will be closing the COVID-19 drive through. The last day for drive through testing will be October 15, 2021. The need for this transition was decided upon based on the collection volume declining. We will continue to set up appointment times for symptomatic patients needing COVID-19 sample collections. Symptomatic patients that are given a physician/provider order for COVID-19 testing can call the Laboratory at 229-243-6188 to set up an appointment for sample collection to be performed outside of Memorial Hospital and Manor Monday through Friday from 1pm to 3pm.
- Preoperative and asymptomatic patients needing COVID-19 PCR testing will continue to be collected in the outpatient Laboratory inside the hospital along with any other lab work ordered.
- Testing is also available through the local Health Department Region 8-2, 6 days a week. No order is required and testing is free. Appointments can be made by calling 229-352-6567. The COVID collection schedule is also available online at http://southwestgeorgiapublichealth.org,
