UI Health Now Operating 4 COVID-19 Testing & Triage Clinics
Friday, December 4, 2020
Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic has required health systems across the country to tap into creativity, ingenuity, and increased collaboration to meet clinical needs. At UI Health, that meant the number of teams working together to plan, develop, and launch four COVID-19 triage and testing sites at various system locations. These locations help our care teams manage the flow and influx of patients with COVID-19 symptoms and exposure, and appropriately triage patients.
These locations include:
University Village: Testing Site
724 W Maxwell Street, Chicago, IL 60607
Hours: Monday - Friday 9 am - 4 pm
Patients who have been appropriately triaged through the nurse triage line (866.600.2273) will be scheduled for an appointment to receive a COVID-19 test. Only those who are triaged through the nurse triage line and recommended for a test will have an appointment scheduled. Testing is done by appointment only and walk-ins are not currently accepted. No visitors allowed in the testing area. Avoid eating or drinking anything 30 minutes before your scheduled testing time. To cancel your appointment, please call 866.600.2273.
