Pre-op & Pre-procedure testing

Pre-op and pre-procedure COVID-19 testing is offered for MHSC patients only. The hospital requires a Cepheid COVID-19 test prior to surgery or surgical procedures.

The service continues to be performed outdoors in the comfort of the patient’s car, just like it was in the drive-thru swab station.

It’s simple. Here’s how it works:

  • Drive to Sweetwater Memorial at 1200 College Drive.
  • Park in front of the Outpatient Lab currently housed in the Foundation offices.
  • Call the swab hotline at 307-448-7560 and let them know you need a pre-op or pre-procedure COVID-19 test.
  • A collection specialist will come out to your vehicle to collect the Cepheid specimen. It’s the same procedure that was once offered in the drive-thru.

The Outpatient Lab is open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays. The COVID-19 testing services are for hospital patients only. The hospital no longer offers no-cost COVID-19 tests. Check with your physician on other options or go to
