Village Emergency Centers is an Emergency Room open 24/7 for Emergency visits. WE ARE NOT AN IN-HOUSE TESTING CENTER. We administer coronavirus tests and collect samples, but do not test in our facility. Village Emergency Centers will not issue any refunds on evaluation for testing and patient-requested testing. Regarding COVID-19 testing, we try our best to evaluate everyone that comes in but we are requesting you that you DO NOT schedule an appointment time if you have no symptoms or reason to suspect exposure to COVID-19, in order to give those that are sick the opportunity to be treated. Please visit our insurance and billing page for more information on cost and insurance coverage.

You can always come into our ERs and we will gladly assist you, but due to circumstances out of our control in the emergency room, your appointment may be rescheduled to a different time and place without adequate notice.
