SJRMC Continues External Assessment for Patients with Flu/Cold-Like Symptoms Such as fever, cough, body aches, sore throat and runny nose
San Juan Regional Medical Center continues efforts to protect our community while providing quality care for our patients. Our External Assessment Area for those with flu/cold-like symptoms continues on Monday, March 16; Wednesday, March 18; and Friday, March 20 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This is a drive through assessment area located in one of San Juan Regional Medical Center’s parking lots on West Pinon Street across the street from the hospital (see attached map). We encourage only those with flu/cold-like symptoms, including fever, cough, body aches, sore throat and runny nose.
Please see your primary care provider for clearance to return to work or other routine healthcare needs. Doing so will allow us to assess those exhibiting flu/cold-like symptoms and our most vulnerable population. If you don’t have a primary care provider, contact the state of New Mexico’s 24/7 hotline at 855.600.3453. Instead of visiting our Emergency Department or one of our many offsite healthcare clinics, patients experiencing flu/cold-like symptoms including fever, cough, body aches, sore throat and runny nose visit this assessment area to be evaluated and treated if necessary, this includes consideration for COVID-19 testing. Signs will be posted in the parking lot to guide patients and provide them with a registration phone number to call. Patients will need to have their ID and insurance information with them. The goal is to meet our community needs and assess those patients with minor symptoms to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
