“We’ve received many questions from individuals wanting to know patient information concerning gender, age and other personal information. We cannot share because of federal patient privacy laws. It’s important we help those in the community know that although we understand their concerns, it’s critical we uphold these laws,” a press release from Archbold states.

The hospital system has also released updates to its service changes.

  • Service Changes:
    • Archbold is converting the COVID-19 Screening Site to a drive-through screening site, effective Thursday, and it will continue being operational Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The site will remain at 2705-D East Pinetree Blvd (old One Blood office), but patients will now drive through for screening behind the building, entering the screening line off of Pinetree near Sonic. A clinician will approach the vehicle and perform the screening swab while the patient remains in their vehicle. Testing will continue to be by physician referral only. Call (229) 228-2990.
    • Archbold has received many inquiries from people across the communities they serve asking how people can help address supply shortages that hospitals across the country are facing. In response, Archbold is soon launching an opportunity for volunteers to help make procedure masks and N-95 mask covers using pre-made kits that will be assembled at the hospital with water-resistant material and instructions from Archbold. Archbold will share more details and points of contact when ready.
