Bryan Health To Close COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing

As the number of COVID-19 testing options in the community has increased, the number of individuals needing to use Bryan Health's drive-thru testing location has come down.

As a result, the drive-thru currently located at 19th & O streets will close at the conclusion of testing Friday, February 5.

“In the first weeks of the pandemic, we quickly realized that a safe testing option for our both patients and team was needed. I’m so proud of the team that stood this up in record time, and to all the staff members who have remained dedicated to this service for 10 months,” said John Woodrich, president & CEO, Bryan Medical Center and executive vice president, Bryan Health.

Bryan opened the state’s first drive-thru COVID-19 testing location on March 24, 2020 at its LifePointe campus in south Lincoln. The team moved to its current, enclosed location on October 6, 2020. To date, nearly 20,400 tests have been performed through the Drive-Thru.

The Nebraska Hospital Association honored the drive-thru team with its Quest for Excellence Award in August.

Going forward, Bryan will focus on staff and resources from this service toward administering the COVID-19 vaccine and working with the Lincoln Lancaster County Health Department as more vaccine becomes available. Some staff will move into departments that need their skill set as the need for services continue to increase.

Bryan will continue to offer COVID-19 testing at its three Urgent Care locations in Lincoln, open daily, for:

  • Symptomatic patients
  • Patients who need a test prior to surgery or procedure - when checking in, inform the nurse you are getting a pre-surgery test and provide your surgeon’s name
