Memorial Hospital opens alternative screening site in Jasper

As Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center continues to closely monitor and proactively plan for COVID-19, they have developed an Alternative Screening Site, located at 695 West Second Street (entrance on the west side of the building – follow the yellow signs) for those patients who do not require emergency department services, but who have symptoms of fever, cough, and respiratory congestion or shortness of breath.

Services provided at this site will include the following: testing for influenza A & B, strep throat, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and chest x-rays. At this time, they are unable to provide COVID-19 testing at this site or at the Memorial Hospital Emergency Department unless the patient meets the criteria defined and authorized by the Indiana State Department of Health.

This site opened Monday, March 16 and will remain open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Patients may call 812-996-6330.

Memorial Health Employer Services and Memorial Hospital Outpatient Rehab Services will remain open at the Memorial Health Center Second Street location. These locations have separate entrances. Patients visiting the Alternative Screening Site are asked to follow the yellow signs for the appropriate entrance.
