Jefferson Healthcare Hospital Nurse Consult Line:

Jefferson Healthcare Hospital consult line staff is available seven days a week 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Initially, phone staff will ask you COVID-19 information screening questions. Then a nurse will call you back within 48 hours to evaluate respiratory illness health concerns and screen for COVID-19 testing. If you have specific questions about COVID-19, please utilize the resources on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. This will allow our team to focus on community members who show symptoms of respiratory illness and screen for COVID-19.

After calling the Nurse Consult Line and after the nurse determines you should be tested, an appointment will be scheduled at either the COVID-19 Evaluation Station or the Drive-thru Testing Station, based on Jefferson Healthcare’s current, established criteria.
