Avita Health System has opened COVID-19 testing sites at Bucyrus, Galion, and Ontario Hospitals. Patients can be tested for COVID-19, as well as influenza and strep throat, while in their vehicles in the parking lot with an order from a medical provider.

Scheduled appointments are required for testing.

The testing sites will be open at Galion Hospital (South Entrance) from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM; Bucyrus Hospital (Cardiac Rehab Entrance) from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM, and Ontario Hospital (East Entrance) from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM.

Medical providers must call to schedule testing and submit an order for patients to be tested at one of these sites. COVID-19 tests can be purchased out-of-pocket without a doctor’s order for $150 by calling 419-462-3437 for an appointment.

Avita’s clinical team will conduct the COVID-19 test via nasal swab through the window of the vehicle. Patients will receive results from their medical provider 2-7 days after testing.

To answer questions about coronavirus, Avita’s COVID-19 Information Hotline is available Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM at 419-468-0800.
