Broaddus Hospital opening drive-thru screening unit Dec. 7

Philippi, W.Va. — In order to offer safe and efficient medical care for minor illness and injury, Broaddus Hospital is expanding their services to a Drive-Thru Screening Unit located on the hospital campus. Patients have access to a number of testing services without leaving their car.  These services include:

  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Earache
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Flu
  • Rash
  • RSV
  • Sore Throat
  • Strep
  • Vomiting

Expanded services are available Monday thru Friday 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Instructions for the drive-thru are as follows:

  • Patients remain in their car. 
  • They will be instructed to call to register for their visit. 
  • A care provider will attend to patients in their vehicle.
  • Patients will be called with results that are processed through the lab.

According to Davis Health System Chief Medical Officer Catherine “Mindy” Chua, DO, FMNM, CPE, providing medical screenings at the drive-thru maintains a cleaner, safer environment in the hospital and Broaddus Family Care.

“Those patients who come for well-checks, annual visits, and chronic disease management can do so with less exposure to others who may have a contagious virus,” Chua said. “The drive-thru clinic is more efficient for those who need quick treatment without an appointment.”

To utilize Drive-Thru services, use the “loop” on the east side of the hospital, following signage as you enter the campus from Route 119.
