BJC HealthCare’s Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital opened a COVID-19 specimen collection site today to help create more widely available testing resources throughout the region.
The collection is available to those who are being referred by BJC providers after screening and those who have been pre-screened using U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. BJC has additional sites open throughout the region as well.
“These collection sites will help better serve our community and reduce potential exposures in hospitals and clinics where patients are being treated for other kinds of medical issues,” said Tony Schwarm, MBSH president.
BJC offers an online screening tool to help assess your risk, and whether COVID-19 testing is recommended. That, along with infection prevention techniques, can be found at bjc.org/coronavirus. For any specific health concerns, contact your health provider.
