When to Make an Appointment
Please note Southcoast Heath offers PCR tests, which are ideally suited for asymptomatic patients needing results for travel, return to work or school, and/or surgeries requiring admission. Symptomatic patients are encouraged to use at-home antigen tests when possible.
At home COVID-19 tests are available at pharmacy locations and at covid.gov/tests.
As a reminder, Southcoast pre-surgical patients who are not being admitted post-surgery DO NOT require PCR testing and should perform a home test as directed by their provider.
Pre-surgery patients who will be admitted to the hospital post-surgery should be scheduled for PCR testing 48-72 hours prior to the surgery.
To schedule, log in to MyChart – once you are logged in, scroll down to the COVID-19 Testing button to book an appointment.
