Keeping you safe is our top priority.
That’s why we’ve opened a Drive-thru Testing Center for our community.
As we continue to face the ongoing impact COVID-19 is having on our local community, we’re doing everything possible to protect our patients, team members, and you!
Here’s what we’re doing to help.
Starting Tuesday, August 3, we are re-opening our COVID-19 Testing Center weekdays from 8 am – 3:30 pm. Our testing center’s goal is to meet the growing needs of our community and help prevent the continuous spread of infection.
Drive-Thru COVID-19 Testing Center at the East Jefferson General Hospital main campus.
4200 Houma Blvd
Metairie, LA 70006
8 am-3:30 pm
We encourage you to take advantage of our drive-thru testing for any of the following reasons:
• If you are experiencing minor symptoms such as fever, cough, body aches, sore throat, runny nose, or any other cold like symptoms.
• If you were exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19
• If you need confirmation of a negative COVID-19 test to return to school/work or for travel purposes
For testing outside of the drive-thru hours above, we encourage you to visit our East Jefferson General Hospital Urgent Care located at 708 West Esplanade Avenue, Kenner, La 70065 or call our LCMC Health COVID-19 Hotline at 504.962.6202 to talk to our dedicated nursing team who will conduct a screening over-the-phone and advise on next steps for care. Our Hotline is available seven days a week. It is open 8 am-11 pm weekdays and 8 am-8 pm weekends.
