Testing

COVID-19 Testing At WHS

Testing for COVID-19 must be ordered by a licensed medical provider. Currently, testing cannot be performed at the request of the public without an order.

All tests must be scheduled by calling 7245791684. WHS will no longer take patients on a “walk-in” basis.

Testing will only be done if you can provide a script from a medical professional. Please also bring a government issued photo ID (such as a Driver’s License) and your insurance information to your scheduled appointment.

Your lab test results are available ONLY through your ordering physician. Please note that testing time varies and in some cases takes approx. a week or more to receive your results. Keep in-mind that if your lab test comes back positive, your doctor will call you immediately.

The WHS lab cannot release lab test results to patients. If you have questions concerning the test or your results, please contact your ordering physician directly.

Seeking Treatment

A statewide Mental Health Support and Referral Line has been developed as part of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 response. This support line is operated by the Center for Community Resources.

Those experiencing anxiety, depression, or any other difficult emotion during this time are encouraged to call the support line which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Callers will be able to speak with trained staff who will listen, assess individual needs, triage situations, as well as refer to other local supports and professionals as needed.

The Mental Health Support Line can be reached toll-free at 1.855.284.2494.

We currently have limited visitation at WHS Washington Hospital and WHS Greene. For more details and updates click here
