Fairfield Memorial Hospital Respiratory Illness Screening Clinic (RISC) Tent in Fairfield to Remain Open 7 Days a Week

Effective immediately, the FMH Respiratory Illness Screening Clinic (RISC) Tent in Fairfield will be open 7 days a week from 8am-8pm for anyone that has the signs and symptoms of a respiratory illness. After 8pm and until the RISC Tent re-opens the next morning, patients with these symptoms should report to the Emergency Department. Signs and symptoms include: a temperature of 100.4°F or higher; shortness of breath/rapid breathing; new or worsening cough; and exposure to a person that has a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19. The RISC Tent will remain open 7 days a week for the foreseeable future to meet the needs of our community.

The FMH Urgent Care will be temporarily closed on weekends in order to staff the Respiratory Illness Screening Clinic (RISC) Tent until further notice. As of Monday, March 30th, the FMH Urgent Care will be temporarily relocating to the Horizon Healthcare Suite A for all non-emergent and non-respiratory needs, to work alongside our Horizon Healthcare Clinic staff. Hours of operation will be from 8am to 8pm, Monday thru Friday. This is just a temporary change as we continue to remain prepared during this time of National Emergency.

Horizon Healthcare Clinic locations are still open for all of your healthcare needs. To schedule an appointment with one of our providers or if you have any questions, please call 618-842-4617.

For any questions related to COVID-19, please call the FMH COVID Hotline at 618-516-1062.
