A collaboration between Deaconess Hospital and the Vanderburgh County Health Department aims to provide more flexibility and COVID-19 testing for residents through the first half of next year.
According to a press release, the two will continue to provide drive-thru testing sites at the Deaconess Clinic on Lynch Road, as well as Deaconess Clinic Downtown on SE Fourth Street.
Vanderburgh County Health Department Administrator Joe Gries says, the collaboration is the results of an Indiana State Department of Health grant, which extends the testing until June of 2021, and could make it possible to administer vaccines to patients if one becomes available.
Both current sites offer early and late hours and online scheduling for both locations will continue through the Deaconess website.
The downtown location will still offer walk-up testing services.
Testing times for the Lynch Road location are Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Operating hours for the Deaconess Downtown clinic vary but are conducted Monday through Saturday.
