Franciscan Health Michigan City shifts COVID-19 testing to Homer Street campus

By: Franciscan Health Last Updated: March 26, 2020

Effective Monday, March 30, Franciscan Health Michigan City’s COVID-19 testing site will be relocated to the former hospital campus at 301 W Homer Street.

Hours of Operation are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Patients must have a physician/provider order and pre-register by calling (219) 877-1474. Patients must bring their doctor’s order and photo identification to the testing site.

A free online assessment is also available for patients who are experiencing symptoms or think they may have been exposed to novel COVID-19 coronavirus. This non-diagnostic questionnaire, developed in collaboration with Franciscan clinical leaders, will determine an individual’s eligibility for a telephonic consultation with a nurse. A nurse will then guide patients with their next steps to the care they need. The online assessment can be accessed at www.franciscanhealth.org/covidaware.

For those seeking information, we request that they not call the Emergency Department, since it takes resources away from treating our patients. For frequently asked questions about coronavirus, you can call this hotline: (219) 879-8511, prompt #8. This is not a medical screening hotline, it’s general information only.
