San Juan Regional Medical Center continues efforts to protect the community while providing quality care for patients.
The External Assessment Area for those with flu/cold-like symptoms will continue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday and Friday in the drive-thru assessment area in the hospital parking lot on West Piñon Street across the street from the hospital.
It is only for those with flu/cold-like symptoms: fever, cough, body aches, sore throat and runny nose. Patients experiencing these symptoms can drive into this assessment area to be evaluated and treated if necessary; this includes consideration for COVID-19 testing.
Testing is at the discretion and judgment of the provider performing the assessment and will be reserved for those in certain high-risk groups. Patients without symptoms should not come to the assessment and do not need testing for COVID-19.
Signs will be posted in the parking lot to guide patients and provide them with a registration phone number to call. Patients will need to have their ID and insurance information with them.
Those who do have symptoms of COVID-19 should not enter medical facilities without first contacting them, especially emergency departments. Unless patients have serious, emergent symptoms, they should not enter emergency departments.
For more information, call (505) 516-0938 or (888) 949-5387.
