COVID-19 testing process

At Logansport Memorial Hospital:

  • Call your primary care provider first, and describe your symptoms.
  • You may be seen by your provider in the office, but depending on availability, your primary care provider may also send you directly to Express Medical Center.
  • To be tested at LMH, you must be symptomatic (have symptoms) and you will be seen by a provider for evaluation.
  • The only exception for testing without symptoms is for a scheduled surgery. If you need COVID-19 testing before your surgery date, testing is only available from 8:30 am - 3 pm, Monday - Friday at Express Medical Center. No appointment is necessary. 

At the Cass County Health Department:

  • At this time, testing will be offered on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 7:45 - 2:00 pm. These scheduled days and hours are subject to change, based on the community need.
  • The Cass County Health Department will offer COVID-19 testing for anyone who wants to be tested. There are no requirements. 
  • Walk-ins are welcome at the Cass County Health Department, but it is recommended that you call ahead and make an appointment: (574) 355-8754.
  • Testing from the CCHD will be performed at the former Logansport Regional Cancer Center building, located at 1616 Smith Street, across from Huston Park.
