Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care recently launched a video visit platform to evaluate patients and determine the most appropriate treatment and care, including COVID-19 testing.
According to Mercy, video visits make it easy for patients to receive care from the safety and comfort of their homes and are available for both non-COVID-19 and COVID-19 related issues.
In St. Charles County, if patients are evaluated via video visit and it’s determined that COVID-19 testing is clinically appropriate, they will be directed to Mercy-GoHealth’s first dedicated COVID-19 testing center, now open at 6167 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.
The center follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state guidelines to administer same-day or next-day COVID-19 tests. The testing is done curbside to ensure that caregivers can safely administer the test without patients having to leave their vehicles.
