Testing updates – Walker closing, more Ohio testing sites, SelfCheck encouraged
We are adjusting COVID-19 testing sites to make testing more convenient, align with patient demand and needs, and help our caregivers and facilities return to pre-pandemic service lines.
The final day of operations at the W.O. Walker Garage testing site will be Sunday, June 13. Operations at the Walker site will move to the main campus P Building on Monday, June 14. The P Building testing site will serve asymptomatic patients only. The exact location is: P Building - Surgery Center (1st floor), 2070 East 90th Street, Cleveland, OH 44195. Hours are seven days a week, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Patients scheduled at the Walker Garage are being notified and having their appointments moved.
More COVID-19 testing sites available conveniently throughout Ohio region
All Express Cares and Urgent Cares in the East, West and South regions now have a limited number of COVID-19 swabbing appointments in place. Sites formerly entirely dedicated to testing have returned to offering their pre-pandemic service lines, in addition to COVID-19 testing.
You can find a full list of testing sites here. A physician’s order and appointment continues to be required for testing at the P Building and throughout the region.
Use of SelfCheck encouraged
With these changes to onsite testing appointments, we continue to encourage use of SelfCheck® COVID-19 Swabbing Kit to meet our patients’ needs. Find more details and resources about SelfCheck.
