CHI Saint Joseph Health is closely monitoring all developments with COVID-19, and our staff is following the latest guidance from local and state health officials as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The safety of our visitors, patients, employees, and physicians remains our highest priority.
CHI Saint Joseph Health has received shipments of the COVID-19 vaccine and is administering the vaccine to health care workers in our facilities. We are also working with state and local public health departments to identify health care workers in our community as part of the first phase of vaccine administration.
Find more information about the COVID-19 vaccine here.
CHI Saint Joseph Health has implemented several new measures designed to protect our patients, staff and community, including a more restrictive visitation policy and screening of our staff and health care providers at all facilities. Read more about current visitor restrictions at our facilities.
Are you experiencing fever, cough, and shortness of breath? If you think you may have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms or exposure, please stay at home to protect yourself and others. The best first step is one of our remote resources:
Our health care providers are in constant communication with local health officials on coronavirus testing. Some of our divisions are offering drive-thru testing services, or outpatient clinics for testing. Check with your health care provider for details.
A test is required in advance of any procedure scheduled in the hospital. Check with your physician’s office if you have any questions. Learn more about how we are resuming services.
Additional information on testing is available through the CDC website.
In accordance with provisions in the CARES Act, the “cash” price for COVID-19 testing is available here. The actual price a patient may pay will likely be lower, as this price does not take into account insurance coverage or financial assistance a patient may be eligible for. Where testing is available at our own facilities it can typically be provided at a reduced cost. If in-house testing is not available, testing may be performed by an outside lab which sets the price for its test. These cash prices are only for the COVID-19 diagnostic testing itself and are not inclusive of the diagnosis and/or treatment of other medical conditions. Charges are continually reviewed and subject to change.
