Testing for Surgical Patients
If you are scheduled for a surgical procedure at Sparta Community Hospital, please visit the Surgical Procedures and COVID-19 section for testing instructions.
Drive- Up Testing
Sparta Community Hospital is working hard to meet the needs of the community during this pandemic.
Sparta Community Hospital has re-opened our drive-up testing site for exposed and/or symptomatic patients. We do ask that you call 618-443-1DOC to be scheduled. Staff will schedule you an appointment to be swabbed. Staff will gather some quick information, including your car type and color. We ask that patients arrive at their scheduled appointments time, with their insurance card ready, and remain in their car. You remain in your car, and a staff member will direct you pull forward, where you will be registered, swabbed and given instructions.
It’s a simple process, and you don’t have to worry about being around other patients.
If the individual does not have a primary care provider, we are asking that he/she calls our Convenient Care Clinic to speak to a provider.
Drive-up testing is available, by appointment, Monday-Friday. Testing is also available 7 days a week at Convenient Care. If requesting to be swabbed at Convenient Care, patients must be seen by a provider.
We cannot stress the importance of hand hygiene and social distancing at this time.
