Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital is partnering with the Kansas Department of Health & Environment and Wichita State University Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory for a state pilot project for free COVID-19 testing.

This project is funded through the State of Kansas SPARK funding.

SBA’s Augusta Immediate Care Clinic at 401 W. Seventh St. in Augusta will be the COVID-19 Specimen Collection Site for this pilot. The project runs through the end of December 2020.

There are five dates the free COVID-19 tests will be offered: Dec. 15, 17, 18, 21 and 22

Patients must call the Augusta Immediate Care Clinic at 316-251-5788 to schedule an appointment time. Only a limited number of appointment times are available.

Once the patient schedules their appointment time they will also be scheduled a parking space outside of AICC.

Healthcare workers will collect the COVID-19 specimen while the patient remains in the vehicle.

Patients will be given information to log into WSU MDL’s SoftGenePortal from SCC Soft Computer to collect information regarding laboratory results.
