TeleHealth Patient Visits

St. Margaret’s Health Now Offering TeleHealth Patient Visits

Your medical provider can now see and talk to you without you leaving the safety, privacy and comfort of your own home.

St. Margaret’s Health’s primary concern is the safety of our patients and communities we serve. In an effort to keep you safe by staying home, you can now visit with your doctor virtually. By downloading and using the Cisco Webex Meetings video conferencing app on your smart phone, tablet or computer, you can now consult with your medical provider wherever you are.

Note: High speed internet access is required.

Pertaining to COVID-19 Testing:

Due to critical shortages of supplies, St. Margaret’s Health is no longer testing walk-in patients for COVID-19; a physician’s order IS REQUIRED. If you have been exposed to COVID-19, please isolate at home, wear a mask and IF symptoms develop, contact your physician to request an order to be tested.

Having symptoms? In order to be tested for COVID-19, Influenza (Flu), Strep, RSV, or to receive a Respiratory Array test, patients MUST have a doctor’s order. Contact your medical care provider. Please DO NOT visit the testing center in Spring Valley without a physician’s order, OR visit an Emergency Department for testing.

There are many sites throughout the Illinois Valley that are still currently testing without physician’s orders, although appointments may be required.  Please refer to local pharmacies and health departments websites, or visit for more information.

Thank you!
