As of Tuesday, March 24th, ACMH Hospital has its first patient with coronavirus in-house. This is the first positive case identified in Armstrong County. ACMH has notified the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Individuals with known sustained contact with the patient are being identified and contacted, as appropriate.
ACMH officials continue to follow specific procedural and safety measures as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and the Pennsylvania Department of Health to ensure patient and staff safety.
Coronavirus information and education can be found on the ACMH Hospital website (www.acmh.org) where links and up-to-date information from the CDC and the PA Department of Health can be found.
ACMH Hospital officials are asking that patients who are attempting to come in for routine lab work or other procedures contact their ordering provider to see if it is medically necessary to come at this time – or if the testing can be postponed.
ACMH would like to again remind individuals who may be sick themselves, including those experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or sore throat, to not come directly to the hospital but first contact their medical provider. Unless you are seeking emergency medical treatment, you are encouraged to call your primary care provider. Just a reminder, if your medical provider directs you to be tested, specimen collection continues to occur at the E Entrance under the canopy overhang. At this time, an order is required when presenting for collection, at this location. Again, if you do not have a primary care provider, you may contact the Pennsylvania Department of Health at 1-877-PA-HEALTH.
