WellSpan Health has opened care locations across south central Pennsylvania dedicated solely to providing non-emergency care for COVID-19 patients.

Patients who have no emergent health needs and are either confirmed or suspected by a healthcare provider to have COVID-19 can visit one of the following locations for non-emergency treatment of health concerns:

  • WellSpan Adams Health Center, 40 V-Twin Drive, Gettysburg. This care location is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
  • WellSpan OB/GYN and WellSpan Pediatric Medicine, 2050 South Queen St., York, will provide primary care services for children and all adults at this site. This care location is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
  • WellSpan Urgent Care, 1000 Norland Ave., Chambersburg. This care location is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.
  • WellSpan Urgent Care, 101 Airport Road, Lititz. This care location is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.

The following additional locations are scheduled to open on Monday, March 30:

These care locations have been temporarily redesigned to exclusively treat the non-emergency care needs of patients suspected, or confirmed, to have COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. WellSpan Health will continue to evaluate the need for additional COVID-19 clinic locations across the communities it serves.

"This is part of our ongoing efforts to prepare for the anticipated increase in the number of positive COVID-19 patients across our communities," said Tom McGann, M.D., executive vice president for clinical practice at WellSpan Health. "As a trusted partner for our patients and our communities, we’re doing our part to combat this new disease and reduce its spread."

"These dedicated care sites ensure our friends and neighbors with COVID-19 have access to the care they need, while also keeping our care locations as safe as possible during this pandemic," he added.

Patients who may be experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19 – including fever and cough, fever and shortness of breath, or a combination of all three – are asked to call their primary care provider. Individuals who do not have a primary care provider, or need additional information, are encouraged to call WellSpan’s Coronavirus Information Hotline at 855-851-3641.

WellSpan continues to offer primary and urgent care services at care locations across the region for those who are not suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19.

In addition, the health system encourages patients to take advantage of alternative care options, such as WellSpan Online Urgent Care, to receive care without the need to visit a care location in person. WellSpan Online Urgent Care allows patients to connect with a physician 24/7 using their computer, smartphone or tablet. Visit WellSpan.org/OUC to get started.
