Beginning the afternoon of Sunday, May 8, COVID-19 PCR drive-thru testing will be available to the community on the Bartlett campus across from the Emergency Department entrance. General hours of operation will be seven days a week from 8:15 a.m. – 5:45 p.m.
Individuals who need a COVID-19 PCR test must register for an appointment. The registration process remains the same – individuals are encouraged to self-register online or call the testing hotline if they need assistance. Calls to the testing hotline will be returned the same day when received between 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Drive-thru testing will be conducted on the Bartlett campus (3260 Hospital Drive) across from the Emergency Department (ED) entrance. Individuals arriving for an appointment should stay to the right side of the roadway, pass the patient registration entrance, and proceed towards the ED entrance on the backside of campus (map and testing site photos). Test collection will occur from the vehicle; individuals do not need to enter the hospital. Please be advised that road construction is currently happening on campus and individuals are asked to drive slowly and follow road signage.
