At this time, KRMC has limited testing capabilities for COVID-19.

Kingman, Arizona, March 17, 2020 – Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) announced updated measures to address coronavirus disease COVID-19:

Virtual Visits with KRMC Care Anywhere

People who have respiratory symptoms are advised to stay at home and complete a virtual visit through KRMC Care Anywhere. As we deal with the coronavirus, KRMC has waived all fees associated with Care Anywhere. All visits are free, and no insurance is required. For more information or to start a visit, go to krmc.zipnosis.com.

Testing for COVID-19

While KRMC is screening every patient and visitor, our testing capabilities are limited, as is the case in many other places throughout the United States. Screening means asking about symptoms and contact with others to identify possible exposure to COVID-19.

We cannot currently offer on-demand testing to the general public. Testing is reserved for patients who meet certain criteria for symptoms and exposure. If you are concerned about your symptoms and possible exposure, complete a virtual visit with KRMC Care Anywhere. We ask that patients with respiratory symptoms not visit our Urgent Care at this time.

Restricted Hospital Entrance

All non-emergency access to the hospital will be through the main entrance, where visitors will be screened for illness in the lobby. KRMC has erected a tent near the Emergency Department entrance to screen patients. Patients who exhibit respiratory symptoms will be treated in a separate designated area outside the Emergency Department to minimize exposure to respiratory illness.

 Precautionary Measures and Social Distancing

Hospital visitation is limited, for our updated visitor policies, visit our COVID-19 FAQ page at azkrmc.com.

Though we currently have no confirmed cases in Mohave County, KRMC advises the public to behave as though COVID-19 is present in the community.

While we understand that people have work and other obligations, we urge the public to stay at home except for essential needs. We recommend keeping a distance of at least six feet between you and other people when leaving your home for necessities.

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you cannot wash your hands, clean them with a hand sanitizer of at least 60% alcohol.

 KRMC Coronavirus Call Center

KRMC has established a call center to address questions about COVID-19. If you have additional questions, or if you do not have the capability to complete a virtual visit, contact KRMC’s Coronavirus Call Center at (928) 263-3456.
