VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Good Samaritan has increased COVID-19 testing at its Convenient Care Clinic location at 1813 Willow Street in Vincennes.
The Knox County Health Department, in cooperation with Good Samaritan and Vincennes University, secured a state grant to expand testing in Knox County.
Previously, the clinic was testing those with COVID-19 symptoms, those with a known exposure and others with a physician’s order. The state grant will now allow the clinic to test those who have no symptoms or a physician’s order.
“Our original plans were to open a new testing site on First Street; however, after much consideration, we decided it would be more feasible to just expand testing through our Convenient Care Clinic,” Adam Thacker, Chief Operation Officer at Good Samaritan, said. “By utilizing the Convenient Care Clinic, we can put more of the state funding toward testing supplies to be able to test more individuals in the community.”
Those who are needing a COVID-19 test, regardless of symptoms, can be tested at the Convenient Care Clinic.
The clinic is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Patients visiting the clinic must call (812) 885-8941 to check in and to receive further instruction for testing.
