BayCare Announces Change At Ruth Eckerd Hall Drive-Thru Testing Site Monday Through Friday 7 To 11 AM

Published: January 20, 2021

Drive-Thru Testing Site Provides Access To Northern And Central Pinellas County Residents.

(CLEARWATER) BayCare announced this week that it has made service changes to drive-thru testing sites in collaboration with government partners in Pinellas and Pasco counties to help accommodate current community needs for COVID testing and vaccinations. 

This includes Ruth Eckerd Hall in Pinellas County located at 1111 McMullen Booth Road which will extend its hours of operation, weekdays from 7 to 11 am. This adjustment will help meet the current community demand for COVID-19 testing.  

BayCare launched drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites in March across the region in addition to testing in its hospital facilities. Since then, BayCare has conducted more than 384,000 COVID-19 tests.

"We believe testing plays a crucial role in containing the spread of COVID-19," said Jim Cote, senior vice president for ambulatory services in a BayCare announcement about the change. "We hope these testing options will help reduce the spread of the virus as we continue to fight the pandemic."
