MU Health Care prepares to open new, larger testing center for COVID-19

MU Health Care is getting ready to open a new, larger COVID-19 test collection location with expanded hours to accommodate an increase in demand in the region.

The site will move from its current location on W. Broadway to 404 N. Keene Street starting Tuesday, January 18.  The new location is inside the east entrance of Women’s Hospital.

The new site is a walk-in test collection center.  It’ll operate Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on the weekends from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  The new location also features more space and a larger indoor waiting area for overflow.

All patients using the site must wear a mask and bring proof of insurance, if insured.  The test will be administered for free with results posted within 48 hours on the MU Health Care patient portal.
