WellSpan Health is expanding several of its locations across Pennsylvania to help care for patients with COVID-19, including three in York County. 

Two WellSpan Urgent Care facilities, located at 4050 N. George St. in Manchester and 96 Sofia Drive in Shrewsbury, will be available to provide treatment. That is in addition to WellSpan OB/GYN and WellSpan Pediatric Medicine, located at 2050 S. Queen St., which has been open for COVID-19 patients since late last month.

Patients with no emergent health needs who are either confirmed or suspected by a health care provider to have COVID-19 can visit these  locations for nonemergency treatment, according to a news release:

  • WellSpan Urgent Care, 4050 N. George St., Manchester, is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day
  • WellSpan Urgent Care, 96 Sofia Drive, Shrewsbury, is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day
  • WellSpan OB/GYN and WellSpan Pediatric Medicine, 2050 S. Queen St., York Township, will provide primary care services for children and all adults at this site. Open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

"These care locations will help ensure those who are confirmed or suspected to be positive for COVID-19 can get the nonemergency care they need, while also protecting others in the community from potential exposure,” said Dr. Thomas McGann, executive vice president for clinical practice at WellSpan Health.

Patients who might be experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, or a combination of all three, are asked to call their primary care provider, WellSpan said in a news release.

Individuals who do not have a primary care provider or need additional information are encouraged to call WellSpan’s Coronavirus Information Hotline at 855-851-3641.
