CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019
Testing takes place during the normal hours at the ACMH Lab via the hospital's main lobby:
A provider order is required to get a COVID-19 test. The ACMH Emergency Department is NOT the place to get a COVID-19 test if you have no symptoms of COVID-19. Test results do not come back more quickly by going to the Emergency Department.
RESULTS: To obtain your COVID-19 Test results, sign-up or log-on to your ACMH Patient Portal account, or contact your ordering provider.
FREE AT-HOME COVID-19 TESTS: Order your tests now so you have them when you need them. Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order 4 free at-home COVID-19 tests. The tests are completely free. Orders will usually ship in 7-12 days. Click HERE to order.

Inpatients on the general med/surg floors are permitted to have rotational single visitors.
The visitor must remain in the patient room for the duration of the visit and refrain from visiting other areas of the hospital. Visitors are required to wear a face mask while in the facility and must be 18 years or older.
With hospitals across the state stretched thin, hospitals are seeing increased wait times and staffing challenges in emergency rooms. ACMH Hospital is currently experiencing a very high volume of COVID-19 patients and emergent medical cases and is at this time asking patients to come to the emergency room only when they believe that they have an emergency medical condition.
ACMH has a network of healthcare providers ready to help when you seek the appropriate level of care. If you have a non-life-threatening illness or injury, please contact your primary care doctor, an urgent care facility or visit one of our Primary Care Center locations.
Call 911 immediately or visit the emergency department only for critical conditions and life-threatening illnesses or injuries.
If you need a COVID-19 test, please contact your physician for an order, or visit one of the many retail pharmacy options in the region offering testing. To find a testing site near you, visit www.pa.gov/covid/stop-the-spread/covid-19-symptoms-testing/.
Help us help the community by getting vaccinated. A large percentage of those currently hospitalized for COVID-19 in our region are unvaccinated. The vaccine is the best way to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy and out of the hospital during the pandemic. Visit www.vaccines.gov for information on vaccine availability in our region. An increase in local vaccination rates would translate into less stress on our hospital resources.
In addition, wear a mask and keep your distance from others when possible. Regardless of your vaccination status, follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations for preventing the spread of the virus.
As a reminder, sales reps/vendors are only permitted in the building if they are providing a clinical need or service and have scheduled the visit with the department/unit manager first. Examples of permitted sales reps/vendors would be those who are required to be in the procedural areas, reps that are assisting with installation of new equipment, providing required education etc. Sales Reps/vendors who are permitted to enter must continue to sign in to Vendormate and obtain a badge. Sales reps/vendors should not be providing buffet style meals during approved visits.
