ACRMC: ER not for COVID-19 Testing

There are more ways than ever to get a COVID-19 test in Adams and Brown counties, but Adams County
Regional Medical Center (ACRMC) wants to remind residents that the emergency room is for
emergencies. There are easier and less expensive ways to get testing completed while keeping our
emergency room available for those in emergent situations.

Recently, ACRMC has had an increase in COVID-19 cases caused by the delta variant making the demand
for COVID-19 testing rise.

“With the increase in COVID-19 cases, we have had an increase in residents coming into the emergency
department for COVID-19 testing,” said Rachel Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer. “We believe getting a
COVID-19 test is a vital tool to use against the spread of this virus, even if you have mild symptoms or
think you’ve been exposed and want the peace and mind. We encourage residents to use the many
COVID-19 testing sites available in the community and leave the emergency department available for
those urgent health needs.”

ACRMC will continue to offer the ACRMC COVID-19 Drive-Thru testing clinic at its main campus located
at 230 Medical Center Drive in Seaman. Those wishing to be tested at this location will need an order
from their family medical provider. In addition, ACRMC Family Medicine in Georgetown, West Union,
and Winchester will continue to offer pull-up testing. Upon arrival at an ACRMC Family Medicine
location, patients will park in the designated parking space and call the number located on the COVID-19
signage and a member of the ACRMC Family Medicine staff will attend to them. If the patient does not
have an order from their family medical provider, a telehealth visit can be performed with an ACRMC
Family Medicine medical provider.
