Pinckneyville Community Hospital COVID-19 Hotline
The 24-hour PCH COVID-19 hotline at 618-357-5915 continues to take calls from individuals with questions or concerns about potential illness or exposure. Clinicians provide the latest information and can guide each caller through the screening criteria to determine if the caller needs additional evaluation and potential testing.
Drive-Thru Testing Clinic
We have drive-thru testing now available. This testing is only for patients who have been screened and have been determined to need testing. This is not for mass public testing. We want to help in a way that is safe for all with the first step being a call to the hotline at 618-357-5915 to determine if they should receive further evaluation and meet the criteria for testing. Please understand this drive-thru option is NOT for the general public. It is in place only for those who have an order through our 24-hour hotline.
The Family Medical Center is now offering TeleHealth visits. Whether you are sheltering in place, staying at home or practicing social distance, you can still see and speak to your physician. You can visit via video chat using your smartphone, tablet or computer. Call today to schedule a visit. We want to emphasize we will not close our clinic, just providing an alternative to a traditional visit.
