After more than three months of maintaining a collaborative testing site, our local health care community is transitioning COVID-19 testing to more sustainable healthcare-based locations in Springfield beginning Friday, July 3.
CoxHealth, Mercy Springfield and Jordan Valley Community Health Center will provide COVID-19 testing at three different locations for people who have been referred to testing by a primary care provider.
Testing will continue to remain widely available—being a previously established patient with these agencies will not be required. Payment is not a barrier to testing.
Patients can be referred by CoxHealth, Mercy or Jordan Valley primary care providers to the testing sites. If someone is sick and doesn’t have a primary care provider, they can use virtual care options to seek medical treatment without exposing others to illness. Links are available at health.springfieldmo.gov/coronavirus.
Although the Health Department is not a testing site, anyone who has issues accessing testing can call our coronavirus call center at (417) 874-1211 or email email@example.com. Inability to pay should not be a barrier for anyone.
Close to 6,000 people were tested at the Mobile Testing Site which was established on March 16 in a joint effort between CoxHealth, Mercy and Jordan Valley.
