Understanding the need for social distancing and facilitating access to the health of the population, the Hospital Clínica Bíblica offers COVID-19 testing and any product from their Pharmacy to your door.
In the case of the COVID-19 test, thanks to the flexibility of the guidelines of the Ministry of Health, you can request it without the need for a doctor’s prescription, have symptoms, or an epidemiological link.
To get tested, you need to schedule the appointment, since the Hospital Clínica Bíblica must prepare its express laboratory and the clothing equipment that will be used by the staff who will do the testing to guarantee safety and thus avoid contagions.
Appointments can be arranged by phone (2522-1000), WhatsApp (8529-2100) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit https://www.clinicabiblica.com/es/servicios/laboratorio-clinico
