Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Do not delay care out of fear of contracting COVID-19. We have implemented infection prevention measures to safely care for you during this time.

Face masks are required for your safety and the safety of others.

We are testing for COVID-19 on an outpatient basis at our Drive-Up COVID-19, Strep, & Flu Testing on Main St and Spicerville Hwy. The Testing Center is open Monday-Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and operates on a first-come, first-served basis. A physician order is not necessary. Learn more at https://www.eatonrapidsmedicalcenter.org/news/ermc-opens-drive-up-covid-19-testing-center/.

At this time, most visitors are restricted (unless medically necessary) to reduce exposure to COVID-19. We are evaluating visitors on a case-by-case basis. When in doubt, please call ahead to inquire. 
 

With the exception of emergencies, all who enter must be screened first. 

We’ve launched telehealth visits! See a Redicare or Family Practice provider online using your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Learn more at https://www.eatonrapidsmedicalcenter.org/services/family-practice-redicare/.
