KINGMAN – With COVID-19 cases declining in the Kingman area, Kingman Regional Medical Center has closed its COVID Services Clinic.
According to a press release from KRMC, the clinic’s last day of operation was Friday, April 22.
For the past two years, Kingman Regional Medical Center has provided free COVID-19 services to the community, including hands-on driving tests, vaccinations for adults and children, and monoclonal antibody therapy to prevent serious illnesses and hospitalization in those who contract the disease. .
As variants emerged and cases increased, KRMC set up a COVID-specific clinic on Stockton Hill Road to meet the growing demand for services.
“Our staff has been incredibly dedicated and flexible in meeting the needs of our community throughout this time, even as circumstances changed frequently,” said Will McConnell, CEO of KRMC.
Going forward, symptomatic patients who may need COVID-19 testing can complete an online assessment through KRMC Care Anywhere by visiting www.azkrmc.com. If needed, the patient’s healthcare provider will provide an order for testing at a KRMC facility, along with a list of additional community testing options.
“With this closure, we seek to return to a more normal standard of care in which a patient is assessed and treated based on the symptoms they present with,” said Dr. Gregory Nelcamp, Chief Medical Officer. “Just like if you were sick with the flu, your care would be handled by our existing healthcare system rather than in a dedicated clinic.”
