Pikeville Medical Center hosting new COVID testing site

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – A new COVID testing site is opening at Pikeville Medical Center as part of the state’s effort to expand testing in some of the state’s hardest hit area.

PMC is currently facing a surge of the Delta Variant that is placing a tremendous burden on the facility to provide medical care to patients, both those battling COVID and those with other medical issues.

“Pikeville Medical Center is full of heroes, but they are tired,” explained PMC President and CEO Donovan Blackburn. “To successfully battle this deadly surge of the Delta Variant, it takes everyone giving 110%, from our physicians to our nurses and all other clinical staff to our environmental service and security personnel.  Having this extra testing resource could not have come at a better time. We are very appreciative for Governor Beshear’s continued support he has shown repeatedly over the past 18 months.”

Wild Health will conduct COVID-19 testing at Pikeville Medical Center seven days a week.
