COVID-19 Specimen Collection for Testing

Good Samaritan Hospital, St. Anthony Community Hospital and Bon Secours Community Hospital, members of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth)have begun providing appointment-only drive-through coronavirus (COVID-19) specimen collection for current and former patients whose physicians are affiliated with Bon Secours Medical Group, Good Samaritan Hospital, St. Anthony Community Hospital and Bon Secours Community Hospital with a verified COVID-19 testing appointment.  

 Testing will be held on an intermittent schedule.    

A referral from one of these physicians is mandatory and specimen collection will be conducted only by appointment.

 Patients who are experiencing symptoms that may indicate illness need to contact their physician’s office to be screened. Current and former patients who meet the current screening criteria will then be given an appointment for drive-through testing.
