COVID-19 testing at Children's Hospital

COVID-19 testing appointments are available across LCMC Health's various locations and can be scheduled by calling the LCMC Health Nurse Hotline at 504.962.6202.

Children’s Hospital’s Uptown drive-thru site is not currently accepting new appointments. We will provide an update at the earliest opportunity when our drive-thru site can open back up to the community.
