COVID-19 testing

We offer convenient, drive-thru COVID-19 testing for children of all ages who have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Testing is done via a simple swab of the inside of the nose and results are typically available within 24-48 hours and viewable in the patient portal.

Our pediatricians' care for all kids

We provide compassionate and skilled medical care for every child, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Every year, our general pediatrics team cares for thousands of children, which sometimes includes coordinating care with specialists and surgeons across CHoR and the region.

It is important to share all medical information with your child's care team, including urgent care visits and care received outside of CHoR or in an emergency room.
