Rapid COVID-19 Testing Available

Sacred Heart ER is now offering three tests for COVID-19.  First is the Rapid Antigen Test – Cost $100, second is the molecular/antigen (nasal swab) test with results in 2-3 business days – cost $130 – cash or credit. Third is the antibody finger-stick blood test with results in 10-15 minutes – cost $50.  COVID-19 tests are scheduled by appointment only and are performed in the comfort of your car.

At Sacred Heart Emergency Center, we believe transparency is paramount during these trying times.  Unlike other centers, our drive up COVID-19 testing is performed independent of the ER.  We do not require being evaluated by a physician and hence there will not be a bill for physician services via drive up testing.  In addition, you will not be billed a facility charge with any of our drive up COVID-19 testing options as again this is an independent endeavor from our Emergency center.

As COVID-19 testing continues to evolve, there are more options for rapid antigen and PCR testing.  Please call our staff for more information.  We will be working on providing paperwork that is clear, concise and easy to understand.  Our staff is trained to answer any questions you have.

However, if you are symptomatic or wish to be evaluated by a physician, that is always an option as well.

We Can Treat a Vast Majority of Your Emergency Medical Issues

Diagnosis and Treatment: Illness or Injury

At Sacred Heart Emergency Room, we’re here to treat sudden illnesses or injuries – just like a hospital ER would do.  Equipped with an in-house x-ray, CT scanning and on-site lab, we can diagnose and treat your condition quickly.

X-ray: Fast medical diagnosis

Our onsite x-ray capabilities helps us diagnose your medical condition quickly. An x-ray is a quick, painless test that allows us to see inside the body, which helps us diagnose specific illnesses and injuries—especially potential broken bones.

CT Scan: Imaging that gives you answers

A computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan allows our doctors to view inside your body. It uses a combination of X-rays and a computer to create pictures of your organs, bones, and other tissues. It shows more detail than a regular X-ray. The procedure doesn’t take very long, and it’s painless.

Lab: In-house tests for a quicker solution

Sacred Heart ER provides fully-equipped, on-site laboratory services to get quick and accurate results. In most cases, our lab results are available to the emergency physician within a few minutes, allowing our team to make an accurate diagnosis and keep your wait time to a minimum.
