COVID-19

East Hill Medical Center is open and welcoming new patients.

 

Symptoms of COVID-19 include: 

  • Fever or Chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of Breath or Difficulty Breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or Body Aches

If you develop symptoms, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, stay home and call your doctor. If you are older, have severe medical conditions, or are immuno-compromised, call your doctor even if your symptoms are mild. If you are experiencing severe symptoms or develop difficulty breathing, call 911.

If you need a healthcare provider, call East Hill Medical Center at (315) 253-8477. We welcome new patients in our pediatric and adult medicine offices. Call us if you are symptomatic or have any concerns and our clinical staff will determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19. East Hill is currently offering testing for our patients for active infections if they have symptoms, or know they were exposed. 

East Hill Medical Center is testing current patients and Auburn Enlarged City School District students. 

East Hill Medical Center is the school physician for the Auburn Enlarged City School District. We are offering testing to children of the AECSD without out-of-pocket costs. Families can also choose to have your child tested with their primary physician or an urgent care facility.

EHMC has set up a dedicated space testing. We test with the Nares test, which is less invasive than the nasal pharyngeal test.

 

This is testing process for children who are symptomatic:

 

  1. The school district will send the consent form and the completed symptom assessment form to East Hill Medical Center.

  2. East Hill Medical Center will then contact the parent to arrange the appointments.

  3. A healthcare provider from EHMC will evaluate the child through a short video visit.

  4. Then, EHMC will conduct a COVID-19 test in the form of a nasal swab not the nasopharyngeal. The nasal swab is less invasive and not as uncomfortable.  At this point, the healthcare provider may also perform other respiratory tests as deemed necessary from the medical evaluation.

  5. Shortly after, EHMC will schedule a short video visit to share the test results.

  6. EHMC will send the results back to the school district, which will include the child’s COVID-19 test results and may include relevant findings from the exam.

  7. If EHMC is not a child’s primary care office, EHMC will send the results to that office.

  8. EHMC will bill the child’s health insurance for any expenses, rather than be billed directly for this service.
