UTAH (ABC4 News) – Steward Health Care will open three, drive-through coronavirus testing centers at multiple of its hospital locations.

The testing will be done at hospitals in Davis, Salt Lake, and Utah counties, according to Steward Health Care representatives.

Patients who which to be tested at one of the three centers must first receive a referral from their doctor otherwise, they will be sent to the emergency department.

Patients referred by their doctors will be able to remain in their car to be swapped and screened for the virus. After the test is complete, results will be sent to the patient’s referring physician for review.

“As Utah and the nation work to combat and contain this crisis, we are ramping up testing through efficient drive-through centers throughout the state,” said Brian Dunn, Market President, Steward Health Care. “Steward Health Care is committed to providing the highest-quality health care for Utah patients in the communities where they live.”
