COVID-19 Testing at ACMC

COVID-19 testing (commonly known as the PCR swab test) is available at ACMC. To receive the COVID-19 swab test, the individual must have an order from a provider on the ACMC Medical Staff. We cannot offer the test to patients without an order or to patients with an order from a provider who is not on ACMC’s Medical Staff. Prior to your provider placing an order for the COVID-19 swab test, your provider may ask questions about your symptoms and/or possible exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19. Your provider will determine the need for the COVID-19 test based on the answers to those questions. The majority of ACMC providers are able to see patients by telehealth visits. To schedule an appointment, call 440-997-6969. ACMC Express Care is also available via telehealth from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Call 440-964-0616 for more information. ACMC Occupational Health is also able to help local businesses and organizations respond to COVID-19, including testing. Click here for more information. To ensure the highest level of safety precautions for individuals receiving the test, other patients, and our caregivers, ACMC is offering drive-through COVID-19 testing. Individuals will remain in their car throughout the testing process. The COVID-19 testing tent is located across the street from the hospital, behind the ACMC Rehabilitation Services building. Enter the testing area from Carso Avenue, between West 25th and West 26th streets. ACMC COVID-19 testing tent hours of operation: • Monday – Friday, 10 am to 6 pm. • Saturday – Sunday, 8:30 am to 4 pm. Everyone who receives the COVID-19 swab test will be advised to self-quarantine at home, and to limit interaction with others in your household, until test results are received. Additional information may also be provided at the testing site. Results of the COVID-19 test are generally available in 24-48 hours and will be sent to your primary care provider. A member of ACMC’s COVID-19 team will contact you directly if your test result is positive for the virus.

ACMC Welcomes family medicine provider Zane Zimmerman, DO

Ashtabula County Medical Center welcomes Family Medicine provider Zane Zimmerman, DO. He sees patients full-time at Jefferson Family Health Center alongside Catherine Bishop, DO; Andi Tirounilacandin, MD; Ravi Chimalakonda, MD; and Peggie Reinhardt, FNP. ACMC’s Family Medicine providers specialize in caring for the whole person.

They develop a course of care to help the patient achieve the best possible outcomes, and, when necessary, coordinate care with a specialist.

Statement from ACMC Healthcare System President Michael Habowski

Every step ACMC has taken to-date – and every step we will take in the weeks ahead – is with one goal in mind: making the best decisions that will keep our patients, caregivers and communities safe based on the information available to us. We know this is a challenging time for everyone. We will get through it by working together. Please follow the guidelines of social distancing, frequent handwashing, coughing and sneezing into a tissue or the bend of your arm, and avoid touching your face with your hands. ACMC is licensed for 249 beds. We have a plan in place for where we would cohort patients diagnosed with COVID-19 to keep them isolated from other patients. We also have a surge plan in place that can be rapidly activated to accommodate a sudden influx of patients with COVID-19. This plan includes other areas of the hospital where we could add beds, as well as working with community organizations for placing patients there. It’s important to remember that these types of plans existed long before COVID-19. They are part of our everyday emergency preparedness plan so we are ready to respond to any situation that presents itself.

ACMC Caregivers grateful as community donations flow in

ACMC has received donations of cleaning and sanitizing supplies; face shields, goggles, masks, and gloves; and protective clothing such as coveralls, and gowns.  In addition, many local residents are collecting supplies or making masks for caregivers and patients to wear. Local companies donating supplies to ACMC include (as of March 31): A Louis Supply, Aramark, Arthur Louis Steel, Ashtabula Area City Schools, Ashta Chemicals, A-Tech, Chromaflo, CJ Contractors, Conneaut Schools, Continental Structural Plastics, Gabriel Performance Products, Geneva Family Dental, Ineos Pigments JoAnn Fabrics, Kelley Steel, Kent State University – Ashtabula, Members of Boilermakers Local 744, Molded Fiber Glass, National Retail Outlet, Steven’s Construction, and Vincent Homes. The donations began arriving at ACMC in mid-March and continue to increase at a time when items are becoming scarce from national suppliers. While ACMC currently has an adequate supply of personal protective equipment on-hand, when patients who are COVID-19 positive begin to arrive, those supplies can go quickly. All of the donated supplies are being stored securely so ACMC Caregivers will have them available the moment they are needed.
