Kettering Health Network is adding locations dedicated to helping patients suffering from respiratory symptoms associated with COVID-19. These new respiratory care locations provide a safe setting for patients to be evaluated for respiratory illnesses and potential testing.
At these locations, patients with respiratory symptoms associated with COVID-19, such as cough or shortness of breath, will be seen by an advance practice provider so they receive the most appropriate care. If the provider decides testing is appropriate, they may order a nasopharyngeal swab test, and results would be returned within a 72-hour period.
"Kettering Health Network is dedicated to providing the care our communities need, especially with the increasing spread of COVID-19," said Robert Sawyer, MD, medical director of Primary Care for Kettering Physician Network. "These new respiratory care locations will help patients get the right level of care and treatment they need, whether it's a cold, flu, or COVID-19."
The respiratory care locations are located throughout the Dayton region:
Appointments for all locations can be scheduled online.
