Health Care System Update


News & Announcements

We need your help!


COVID-19 cases within Central Alabama are rising. Our top priority is ensuring you continue to receive the highest quality healthcare during a surge of COVID-19 Omicron cases.


Please note, the Montgomery Campus Emergency Department is not a COVID testing site for non-emergent patients. PLEASE reserve use of the ER for those experiencing a medical emergency or if you feel your COVID symptoms require emergency medical treatment. If you recently came in contact with someone with COVID and have minimal symptoms, keep isolated from others to avoid possible spread and monitor your symptoms until you can schedule an appointment for a COVID test.


Being fully vaccinated, receiving a booster shot and wearing a mask in public indoor settings is the most effective way to protect yourself and others against COVID. If you have not been fully vaccinated or received a booster, we encourage you to schedule an appointment or attend one of our walk-in clinics.

Tuesdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. (CT)
