Local healthcare providers are transitioning their COVID-19 testing from a collaborative testing site to healthcare-based locations starting Friday, July 3.
CoxHealth, Mercy, and Jordan Valley Community Health Center will have three different locations for people who are referred by a healthcare provider for COVID-19 testing. You do not need to be a previously established patient with any of those agencies to obtain testing; payment is also not a barrier to testing.
Someone who does not have a primary care provider and is showing signs of COVID-19 can contact a healthcare unit through virtual visits:
- CoxHealth is utilizing its virtual visits to evaluate patients for COVID-19 testing. Anyone can have a visit on-demand with a primary care provider by visiting coxhealth.com/coronavirus.
- Mercy Springfield will refer established patients for testing through their primary care provider. You can schedule a virtual visit online at mercy.net or call your provider directly. Individuals without a Mercy provider can schedule a virtual visit or save their spot online at any of the four Mercy-GoHealth locations in Springfield by visiting gohealthuc.com/springfield.
- To access testing at Jordan Valley Community Health Center, individuals can call (417) 831-0150 to schedule a virtual visit and a drive-up testing appointment.
The Springfield-Greene County Health Department will NOT be a testing site but can provide information about testing locations by calling their coronavirus call center at 417-874-1211.
