Weekend hours for the Assessment drive-through Center are 2pm-4pm! Saturday and Sunday hours for the CCMH and LCHC Assessment Drive-Through Center are 2pm-4pm at 3811 West Gore. The drive-through clinic is for those who are experiencing a fever. We are asking people to please self screen first – if you do not have a fever, please do not visit the clinic at this time. People will be screened in their vehicles throughout the entire process for everyone’s safety. Signage will be posted on the corner of Gore and Arlington. Drivers will follow around the back side of the Lawton Community Health Center Clinic by using Arlington street. Directional signage will also be posted on where to enter for step one screening. Initial screening will include temperature checks and other vitals to determine if you will move on to the next screening station. Registration will take place for those moving through the process; this process may include a flu test if necessary and, for those who meet the criteria, a specimen for COVID-19 may be collected and sent for testing. COVID-19 testing is still not widely available for everyone who wishes to be tested. Please bring your identification and any insurance information with you to the Assessment Drive-Through Center. It will be open from 2pm – 6pm during the week as long as supplies last.
Comanche County Memorial Hospital continues to take precautionary measures to safeguard our patients, staff and community from the coronavirus (COVID-19). CCMH Administration has decided to postpone elective, non-urgent surgical procedure that can be rescheduled and will not significantly impact a patient’s health.
This recommendation comes from both the Surgeon General and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The decision was not taken lightly as we know it will inconvenience patients, impact our staff and providers. The reasons for postponing are two-fold: helping in our efforts to preserve supplies and personal protective equipment and reducing the risk of coronavirus spread.
Emergency and urgent surgeries and procedures will continue. These cases include any procedures that should be done right away or within a 4-week time period because postponing could negatively affect the patient’s health. Staff will be contacting patients as their cases become eligible for potential postponement. You can still enter The Outpatient Center for routine blood work. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to fight the spread of COVID-19.
