COVID-19 Testing Information

Where and when is COVID-19 testing available?
Outpatient COVID-19 testing is available at Hillsdale Hospital’s main lab or the outpatient lab at Three Meadows. The main lab is located on the hospital campus at 168 S. Howell Street in Hillsdale. The lab is open Monday-Friday,  6:30 am-5 pm and Saturday, 6:30 am-12 pm. The outpatient lab at Three Meadows Medical Building is located in Suite 285, 451 Hidden Meadows Drive in Hillsdale, open Monday through Friday, 8 am-12 pm.

In partnership with our reference lab at Sparrow, we also offer self-collection PCR test kits available free for pickup at the main hospital lab. They are available first come, first served Monday through Friday during the lab’s regular business hours. Hillsdale County residents may retrieve up to 6 test kits per household and may pick up for up to 3 households. (This is particularly helpful when multiple households are planning to gather for an event and all would like to test prior to the gathering.) The self-collection swabs can be returned to the lab for processing. If you drop off your swab by 3 pm on weekday, you will be notified by phone with your test results within 24 hours. If you have not received notification of your results within 24 hours, please call Sparrow Client Services at (517) 371-9500.

Do I need an appointment or a physician’s order?
The lab is walk-in only, but a physician’s order is required for outpatient testing. (If you are picking up self-collection kits, no physician order is required.)

Who should I call if I have questions?
If you have questions about your health or whether you need a COVID-19 test, please contact your primary healthcare provider. If you do not have one, you can always visit Hillsdale Health & Wellness, our walk-in clinic at 240 W. Carleton Road, or you can call to set-up a Virtual Visit with one of our providers at (517) 437-7040. If you have questions about laboratory services, please call (517) 437-5160.
