POSTPONED: Community Health Day

In partnership with CHRISTUS Health, Columbia Lodge #81 has been diligently planning an event aimed to build a community that is more secure, productive, healthy, and hopeful. We plan to have local experts speaking on a variety of health-related topics that will educate and empower community members to take charge of their own health and well-being.

Due to an increase in community COVID cases, the event will be rescheduled for a later date at the HW Grays Building at Pacific Park. We apologize for any inconvenience, but want everyone to stay safe!

COVID Testing at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinics | Urgent Care

Due to a shortage of COVID testing supplies, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that rapid tests will be available.  If rapid tests are not available, we will be able to send out a COVID PCR test, which typically results in 2 days, but could take up to 7 days if testing volume is high.  We are working diligently to obtain additional supplies and appreciate your understanding; please know that we remain dedicated to providing you with the very best care possible.

Thank you for your respect and consideration!

With a spike in COVID-19 cases in Hopkins County, we appreciate anyone who has made an appointment with a provider at one of our clinic locations kindly cancelling within 4 hours of their scheduled time to allow the visit slot to be filled with someone else who may need it. Thank you in advance for allowing us to provide for your healthcare needs, while extending grace to our staff.
