This is a drive through assessment area located in one of San Juan Regional Medical Center’s parking lots on West Pinon Street across the street from the hospital. It is only for those with flu/cold-like symptoms: fever, cough, body aches, sore throat and runny nose. Patients experiencing these symptoms can drive through this assessment area to be evaluated and treated if necessary; this includes consideration for COVID-19 testing. Testing is at the discretion and judgement of the provider performing the assessment and will be reserved for those in certain high risk groups. Patients without symptoms should not come to the assessment and do not need testing for COVID-19.
Signs will be posted in the parking lot to guide patients and provide them with a registration phone number to call. Patients will need to have their ID and insurance information with them. Please place your trust in us as medical professionals who are working so hard to protect and treat our community and only come to the assessment if you are currently exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms.
Please see your primary care provider for clearance to return to work or other routine healthcare needs. Doing so will allow us to assess those exhibiting flu/cold-like symptoms and our most vulnerable population. If you don’t have a primary care provider, contact the state of New Mexico’s 24/7 hotline at 855.600.3453.
It is also critical that those who DO have symptoms of COVID-19 do NOT enter medical facilities without first contacting them, especially emergency departments. Unless you have serious, emergent symptoms, you should not enter emergency departments.
