The COVID-19 testing center at the Edward Elmhurst Health Corporate Center in Warrenville opened on March 25 with a team of frontline healthcare workers that came from other Edward-Elmhurst locations, many of which were temporarily closed due to the global pandemic.

In the beginning, the group saw about 25 patients a day due to limited availability of testing resources. However, the site, which provided three types of testing — a rapid 15-minute test, one processed onsite at an Edward-Elmhurst laboratory, and a version sent to an offsite laboratory — ended up seeing upward of 400 patients a day.
