HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese has announced the temporary closure of their Convenient Care services at 14509 State Route 127 in Carlyle.
The hospital says the action effective Monday is being taken out of an abundance of caution as a result of the expended cases of COVID-19 throughout Illinois including the Southern Illinois region.
Dr. Albert Butalid’s office at the same location in Carlyle and at the New Baden Convenient Care location will remain open and will continue to see patients.
Walk-in lab can be directed to St. Joseph’s Hospital Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 6 a.m. to noon. Walk-in lab services are closed at the hospital on Sundays and holidays.
For those needing to be evaluated by a provider, HSHS Medical Group is offering COVID-19 Virtual Assessments through Anytime Care (anytimecare.com) and are waiving the fee for visits related to screening and evaluation of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Any associated lab tests with the virtual visit will be billed to the patient’s insurance. All calls not related to COVID-19 will be charged the regular $29 fee. If you are concerned about your symptoms, visit AnytimeCare.com, download the app or call 1-844-391-4747 to start your medical visit.
The hospital still strongly encourages the community to continue to comply with the governor’s directive and practice social distancing to help our community and our health care professionals remain healthy.
