​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.  Please note that all patients are still required to wear a facial covering prior to entering any testing site for the health and safety of all of those in the facility.

Testing for Christ Hospital Physician 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 locations:

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.

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 in Urgent Care Centers

For patients experiencing fever, cough, respiratory or other flu-like symptoms, we now offer respiratory care clinics inside of the Urgent Cares in Fort Wright, Green Township, 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.
