Emergency & Trauma Care

COVID-19: Coronavirus
Our emergency department teams care for very seriously ill patients. Sick people who are seen in the ER can be tested and treated for COVID-19 as needed. If you don’t require immediate medical care but need to be tested for COVID-19, call the Beacon AnswerLine at 1-855-523-2225 from 8 am to 5 pm, Mon-Sat; contact your doctor’s office; or, visit for free testing sites. Individuals who walk into the ER for a COVID-19 test will be charged for an emergency department visit. Please use an alternate testing site if you do not need immediate medical care. This helps our ER maintain the needed resources to care for the community’s sickest people.
