Davis Medical Center’s Alternative Drive-Thru Screen Unit closing next week

Elkins, W.Va. — On April 16, 2021 Davis Medical Center’s Alternative Drive-Thru Screening Unit (ASU) will be closing. Originally the ASU was designed for COVID-19 testing and other screenings such as flu, strep throat, and RSV to reduce the amount of exposure in Davis Medical Center’s indoor clinics.

“The ASU has been an excellent source of medical services during the course of the pandemic, but with a significant reduction in COVID-19 cases, we are encouraging individuals to return to their primary care doctor for routine visits, or seek medical care at DirectCare of Elkins for non-emergent sick visits”, said Chief Medical Officer Dr. Catherine Chua, DO, FAAFP, FMNM, CPE.

DirectCare of Elkins features a drive-thru clinic and walk-in services for patients with acute, non-emergent conditions like burns, sprains, strains and cuts. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms please use the drive-thru clinic. DirectCare of Elkins is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., and Sunday noon – 4 p.m., and is located at 720 Beverly Pike, Elkins, WV 26241.
