Holy Redeemer Health System offers COVID-19 testing for patients who meet screening criteria and have a valid testing order from their physician. The patient’s health care provider will email a copy of their prescription to our scheduling office. Once received our office will call the patient directly to schedule the test and confirm the date/time of the testing appointment.

The testing site is located within the Holy Redeemer Health and Fitness Center, 1648 Huntingdon Pike, Meadowbrook, PA. Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Patients must be scheduled for a specific time; no unscheduled appointments are permitted. Any Holy Redeemer employee who feels they are a candidate for COVID-19 testing should follow protocols and contact their Manager and Occupational Health.
