COVID-19 Treatments

We offer dedicated facilities to help people with COVID-19. Our hospital provides isolated areas for COVID patients, as well as the latest treatments to fight the disease, including Monoclonal Antibodies.

  • OOT Box – We have an isolated testing area, located outside of the Prairie View Clinic, so that patients can be isolated during testing.
  • Isolated ER – We have created a walled-off area of the ER with increased ventilation and HEPA filters to clean the air.
  • Isolated patient care room – Due to the highly contagious nature of COVID-19, we provide an isolated patient care room using negative air pressure so all risk of infection stays in the room.
