To manage patient volumes effectively and safely, the Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital Walk-in Clinic at 650 Linden will no longer accommodate those seeking a walk-in COVID-19 test.
Beginning Monday, October 25, patients arriving at the walk-in clinic for a test will be referred to a local COVID-19 screening phone line, staffed by a walk-in clinic provider Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Patients must be screened to receive a provider order to be able to schedule a test.
COVID-19 screenings are also available all times of the day via an e-visit in Spectrum Health MyChart. Patients may also call their primary care office for a screening.
Once a patient has a valid provider order, they can schedule their COVID-19 test with the Big Rapids Drive-Thru, or other testing site, in their MyChart account or by calling 833.755.0696.
Expanded drive-thru test appointments at Big Rapids Hospital will be available Monday through Saturday, located off Willow Avenue near the dog park.
The Big Rapids Walk-In Clinic will continue extended hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and same day appointments are available to established patients at Big Rapids Family Medicine. Walk-in services in Reed City remain closed at this time.
