Memorial Hospital & Manor resumed COVID-19 drive thru services October 27, 2020. Drive thru services are provided Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2pm-3pm under the breeze way in front of the hospital until further notice. Patients must have a physician/provider order for testing. Drive through services will be utilized for symptomatic patients only. All non-symptomatic patients will be tested inside the hospital in the out-patient lab. Non-symptomatic patients will enter the hospital through the Emergency entrance for screening and then proceed to the front registration to be registered. Non-symptomatic patients will be swabbed in the out-patient laboratory located in the front of the hospital after the registration process is complete.
Preoperative (non-symptomatic) patients needing COVID-19 PCR screening will be collected in the outpatient collection area inside the hospital Monday through Friday from 7 am to 2 pm. Patients should enter through the Emergency room entrance for screening. Once screening is complete the patient will go directly to the out-patient lab (in the front of the hospital).
We are following the most current guidelines for testing provided by the Georgia Department of Public Health. As guidelines change, we will update our policy.
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,
