Ingersoll/Tillsonburg –

In collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Southwestern Public Health, Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital (TDMH) will open a COVID-19 Assessment Centre on Wednesday, May 27 to serve the residents of Tillsonburg and surrounding communities. The Assessment Centre is located down the street from the hospital at 17 Bear Street.

Until now, residents of Tillsonburg and area could be tested for COVID-19 at the Woodstock Hospital Assessment Centre, in some family physician offices and in the TDMH Emergency Department. Over the weekend, Premier Doug Ford advised that the opportunity to be tested for the virus is now available to ALL, emphasizing that "you will not be turned away, even if you or your family don't have symptoms. If you feel you need a test, you will be able to get a test."

“In support of this direction and to ensure we have sufficient capacity for increased testing, we have determined the Tillsonburg Assessment Centre should open immediately,” said Sandy Jansen, President and CEO, TDMH.

No referral is needed but for safety reasons, patients will be asked to schedule an appointment for testing. “Scheduling an appointment will also allow our team to prepare for your visit, avoid any delays and avoids line up,” said Jodi Edwards, Director Clinical Services at TDMH. “Each visit should take less than 15 minutes.”

The Assessment Centre is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm. To book an appointment for COVID-19 testing at the TDMH Assessment Centre call 1-855-905-6148.
