Alternate Care Site to be Removed

By the end of June, the alternate care site that was established next to the Emergency Department in the event of a COVID-19 surge, will be disassembled and removed. In the meantime, the space will be kept open. If a surge of COVID-19 does occur, it will be utilized to redeploy the alternate care site.

The laboratory location in West Branch Medical Center will reopen to patients on Monday, June 29, 2020. Hours of operation will be 7:30 am-4 pm, Monday through Friday only.

Patients will need to have a hard copy of their laboratory orders with them to avoid delays in moving individuals through the small waiting area. For questions or to obtain laboratory orders, contact your primary care provider. Only one patient will be permitted to be in the actual lab area at any one time.
