Coronavirus Testing in Ashtabula
Ashtabula, OH (April 15, 2020)- Northeast Ohio-based Signature Health, a community agency providing primary medical care, infectious disease specialty care, mental health, and substance abuse services, is now offering COVID-19 testing at our Ashtabula location, 4726 Main Ave., Ashtabula, OH 44004.
Signature Health is now offering testing to our patients, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 9am and 11 am. The testing will occur in a designated area in the parking lot. If someone is not currently a patient of Signature Health, he or she can call our COVID-19 hotline at 440-578-8203 Monday-Friday, from 9am to 5pm to speak with a triage RN. “We’re doing everything within our power to offer resources for the Ashtabula community regarding COVID-19,” said Signature Health CEO, Jonathan Lee. “We chose our Ashtabula location as our first to offer coronavirus testing because there are fewer testing locations in Ashtabula County and transportation can be a barrier.”
Signature Health Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Libbie Stansifer, confirms that Signature Health continues to adapt quickly to serve our community. “Offering testing is the next logical step for us. Over the past several weeks, our leadership team has been consulting with local and federal health officials regarding COVID-19 and discussing anticipated community needs. We quickly established telemedicine services, pharmacy delivery and curbside pick-up, and a COVID-19 hotline with triage RN’s,” said Dr. Stansifer.
Dr. Sarah Hoehnen, Signature Health Director of Infectious Disease, adds, “We are eager to offer testing in Ashtabula. I think the important message to share right now is that we are here for the community and always will be.” Getting scheduled for a test is a simple. For patients already coming to Signature Health for primary care, the first step is talking with their doctor to determine if they should be tested. For people not currently coming to Signature Health, they can call the COVID-19 hotline 440-578-8203 and speak with a triage nurse.
