Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks

Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks (VHSO) is partnering with the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) to conduct a drive-thru COVID-19 testing for Arkansas Veterans and their family members/caregiver. The drive-thru testing will be held on Saturday, June 27, 2020 from 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. in the parking garage at 1100 N. College Avenue Fayetteville, AR 72703. Signs and individuals will be on site to help vehicles with directions.

Arkansas Veterans and their family members/caregiver will proceed in their vehicles for a drive-thru COVID-19 testing. They will complete paperwork with an employee of VHSO. The Veteran and their family member/caregiver will then be instructed on how to self-swab their nasal passages by a trained healthcare professional. Per ADH, test results will take 3-5 days.

The Veteran and family members/caregiver will then self-swab while the trained healthcare professional watches to ensure it is completed correctly. Self-swabbing consist of place the swab in one nasal passage and turning a couple of time then holding for 15 seconds. The same process will be completed in the other nasal passage. Once the swab has been completed the Veteran and family member/caregiver will place their swab in a tube then a biohazard bag. The testing will be complete at this point and they may leave campus

There is no fee for testing. Testing is free and provided by ADH. Veterans do not need to be enrolled in VA. They only need to be a Veteran.

VHSO wants you to know that we are trying to do our part and help stop the spread of COVID-19. Safety is the priority at VHSO. We are looking forward to being a testing site for our Veterans and their family members/caregiver.

Please join me in congratulating the TAVR team that includes Dr. Wood and Dr. Cole on their 200th case today 👏💜 #here4you

The TAVR team at Washington Regional Walker Heart Institute performed their 200th procedure this morning! TAVR is a minimally invasive technique for replacing the most critical valve in the heart – the aortic valve – without open heart surgery. Washington Regional was the first health system in NWA to offer the procedure without patients having to undergo general anesthesia.

🚨IMPORTANT🚨
Over the past week, Washington Regional has seen a 350% increase in the number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients. It is important for our community to understand that we are not seeing more hospitalizations simply because more testing is being done. We are seeing more hospitalizations because more people in our area are being infected with the virus. Read the full statement from our COO about the surge in cases in NWA here https://bit.ly/37m8xp6

🚨UPDATE🚨
Washington Regional has re-opened its Coronavirus (COVID-19) Clinic located at 3318 N. North Hills Boulevard in Fayetteville. This clinic is now dedicated to testing individuals who are asymptomatic, or without symptoms, but had direct exposure to someone with Coronavirus. Hours are 9 am-5 pm, 7 days a week. Individuals with active symptoms of COVID-19 or respiratory illness can continue to be evaluated, treated, and tested (if necessary) at the Washington Regional Urgent Care in Fayetteville, located at 3 East Appleby Road, Suite 101, inside William L.
