WHEELING, W.VA. – The Wheeling Hospital off-site COVID testing center at the former OVMC will be closed Thursday and Friday.
The site will reopen for testing from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, and resume normal operations Monday. The testing center is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the week, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.
The center is now also testing for strep throat, influenza, COVID and, on high-risk children, RSV (respiratory syncytial virus).
The drive-through center is located at the former Harmony House, next to Valley Professional Center South at the old OVMC. To reach the site, those being tested will drive up 22nd Street to behind the old Valley Professional Center South, turn left at the top of the hill and follow the signs.
Those wishing to be tested must first pre-register. A convenient way to do that is to go to WheelingHospital.org and click on COVID-19 Testing – Register Here. Those unable to register online may also call the hotline at 304-221-3995.
Wheeling Hospital has been conducting off-site COVID testing since March 18, first at Wheeling Park and now at its new location. Since opening, the site has conducted nearly 20,000 tests, more than any other site in West Virginia.
