“Anyone experiencing symptoms like shortness of breath or chest pain should call 911 or seek care in our ER,” said Dee Renshaw, CEO of Hillcrest Henryetta. “If your symptoms aren’t emergent, we ask that you not visit the emergency room to allow us to conserve our staffing and resources.”
Anyone who needs a test and are experiencing mild or no symptoms of COVID, should call the hospital at 918-650-1100 to schedule a test between the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The hospital is providing a limited number of tests a day in an outpatient setting.
As of Wednesday, Jan. 12, Hillcrest HealthCare System had 115 COVID inpatients; 86% were unvaccinated.
