​COVID-19 testing at The Christ Hospital

At The Christ Hospital Health Network, we’re committed to keeping our patients healthy and providing the best care available. With the current pandemic, we now provide the following types of testing for COVID-19. 

Pre-procedure testing for patients of The Christ Hospital Physicians

For your safety, and the safety of our employees and other patients, we're requiring all patients scheduled for surgery or certain procedures at The Christ Hospital to be tested for COVID-19 prior to their appointment. Your physician's office should contact you and provide all the necessary information for your test.

All locations within The Christ Hospital have mask guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of our community, patients, and staff. Please note, we do not perform pre-procedure COVID-19 testing for surgeries or procedures being performed at other hospitals or medical facilities. If you are not sure if you should get your pre-procedure COVID-19 test at The Christ Hosptial, please call your physician's office to confirm. 

Your physician's office will contact you with your test results, or if you have a MyChart account, you can also see your results when they are available in five – seven days. (If you do not have a MyChart account, you can call your provider's office and ask for MyChart activation.)

Testing for patients with COVID-19 symptoms or asymptomatic patients with a physician order

Patients with COVID-19 symptoms or asymptomatic patients who may have been exposed to a COVID-19 positive patient should call their Christ Hospital Primary Care provider and request a test. If your physician agrees that you need to be tested, you can do so at the following location:

Montgomery Surgery Center
11150 Montgomery Rd
Enter via Entrance B
M-F: 7:30am-4:00pm; Sat: 8:00am–12:00pm

Please note, all locations with The Christ Hospital have mask guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of our community, patients, and staff.

For individuals who are not patients of The Christ Hospital Physicians

If you are not a patient of The Christ Hospital Physicians, but would like to be evaluated or treated for COVID-19 or other respiratory illnesses, you can choose from one of the three following options:

Respiratory Care Clinics

For patients experiencing fever, cough, respiratory or other flu-like symptoms, we now offer respiratory care clinics in Fort Wright and on Red Bank. These clinics will provide a medical assessment, conduct flu and strep testing, and provide treatment for flu, strep and related respiratory conditions. Patients will be  tested for COVID-19 only if the physician or provider determines it is medically appropriate. 

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, and you’re in need of immediate care, call 911 or visit one of our emergency departments , located in Mt. Auburn & Liberty Township.

Find a new Christ Hospital Physician

For new patient visits, the first thing you should do is call our new patient scheduling line at 513-585-3000 to find a provider near you who is accepting new patients. Based on your current needs and condition, the provider may:

  • Schedule you for an in-office visit.

  • Conduct a visit over the phone.

  • Schedule you for a video visit.

How to get your COVID-19 test results

Your provider’s office will call you with your results in approximately one - six days, depending on the volumes our labs are handling. 

Test results are also available in MyChart as soon as the test is resulted, therefore you may see your results before your provider has had a chance to call you. (If you do not have a MyChart account, you can call your provider’s office and ask for MyChart activation.)

Please do not call the lab testing site for your test results. They will not be able to provide results to you.
