Beginning Monday, March 8, The Bellevue Hospital (TBH), 1400 W. Main St., Bellevue, will transition to drive-up COVID-19 testing at 1400 W. Main St., Suite E. This new site is located in the medical offices behind the hospital. TBH’s drive-thru testing currently offered at the Main Entrance of the hospital will end on Friday, March 5 at 3:30 p.m.
“We are happy to report that we are beginning to see a decrease in the volume of COVID-19 testing,” said Timothy A. Buit, TBH’s president and chief executive officer. “Because of that, we feel this new location will be a good fit for what is needed to do this testing.”
COVID-19 drive-up testing hours will now be from 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. There will be no drive-up testing on the weekends. Patients who need a COVID-19 test will enter TBH via County Road 302 and turn right onto Winthrop Way. The medical office building will be on the right. Once a patient arrives to the COVID-19 testing site at 1400 W. Main St., Suite E, he or she will pull into a designated parking spot and call the phone number provided on the window of Suite E.
Outpatient COVID-19 collection will be completed at this new COVID-19 drive-up testing site with the exception of those patients who need additional bloodwork or are getting tested as part of pre-admission testing for surgeries. Please be sure to have a mask or face covering on before pulling up for testing. A physician order is required and insurance information will be collected at the time of testing.
All other laboratory services will be offered through the Main Laboratory at the hospital, 1400 W. Main St., and Family Health Services outpatient laboratory services, 402 W. McPherson Highway, Clyde. Normal hours of operation for the Main Laboratory are 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
