COVID-19 Updates

Updated: October 6, 2020

At Hillsboro Area Hospital, we are working hard to ensure the safety and wellness of our team members, patients, and the community. As a community, we are asking for your help with this.

Along with frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home when you are sick, we are also asking that you call into our Emergency Department at (217)-532-4199 before coming in for any Coronavirus concerns. This will allow us to perform an over the phone assessment, provide you with guidance and fully prepare for your arrival to the hospital, if necessary.

These steps are designed to reduce the likelihood of community spread of the disease, protect our caregivers, patients, and all vulnerable populations, as well as preserve healthcare resources so that we can maintain our readiness to care for our community.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in our efforts to keep everyone as safe and healthy as we possibly can.

Pricing of COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing

In compliance with the Public Health Act (Sec. 3202), please take the time to review the cash price for the diagnostic test for COVID-19. While your health insurance plan will likely cover this lab without cost to you based on current emergency rules, it is important to check with your plan provider for the most accurate pricing information.

COVID-19 Diagnostic Test Cash Price:

  • $150.29 or $257.58, depending on where the test is processed

Note: Other tests and screenings may be ordered and provided at the same time of service, which will affect your total bill, and may not be part of the COVID-19 coverage with your plan, thus co-pays and deductibles may apply.

COVID-19 Temporary Visitor Guidelines

Updated: August 5, 2020

As we progress through the challenges of COVID-19 we would like to share our updated visitor guidelines.

 At this time, all visitors will continue to be screened and required to wear a mask upon entry.

  • We are now allowing one visitor at a time per patient throughout the facility. Three visitors will be allowed at a time for those who are deemed critically ill.
  • Patients who are coming to the hospital for an elective service, such as surgery, x-ray, labs, etc., may now have one support person join them in the waiting area.
  • Patients who are coming to the hospital campus to see a provider in the Specialty Clinic may now have one support person join them in the Specialty Clinic.
  • For the safety of you and the members of your family, we continue to encourage that visitors be at least 18 years of age or older. If someone under the age of 18 must enter the hospital, due to daycare or babysitting issues, etc., we encourage you to bring a mask for them to wear while in the building, if they are able.

 We ask for your continued patience and support as we work to move our processes closer to normal. Thank you.
