We are now offering monoclonal antibody treatments at all locations to patients that qualify. Monoclonal antibodies may block the COVID-19 virus from attaching to human cells, making it more difficult to reproduce and cause harm. Monoclonal antibodies may also neutralize the virus.
Specific criteria exist in order to qualify to receive the Monoclonal Antibody Infusion. In order to receive this treatment, you must be pre-screened. To receive your pre-screening, please call 888-871-6130. Go to our Regen-COV Monoclonal Antibody infusion page for complete details about this treatment.

  • Are you experiencing fever, cough, headache, or shortness of breath?
  • Is your spouse, child, or family member a healthcare worker?

Below are the three types of COVID-19 tests we conduct at SignatureCare Emergency Center.

1. Antigen Test

Available at Signaturecare: Yes
On-Site? Yes.
Results typically back in 15 Minutes

Rapid antigen tests are easily performed at our ER with a nasal swab. The test detects viral protein in an actively infected person. The manufacturer published data that states that the test is 100% specific (Meaning: if it is positive it is 100% accurate), and that it is 80% sensitive (meaning: if it is negative, it is 80% accurate).


2. Antibody Test

Available at Signaturecare: Yes
On-site or Send Out? Send Out
Results typically back in 1 to 2 days
Note: Due to unusual circumstances, results may take up to 10 days or longer.

Antibody tests check your blood by looking for antibodies, which can show if you had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19.
Antibodies are proteins that help fight off infections and usually provide protection against getting that disease again (immunity). Antibodies are disease specific. For example, measles antibody will protect a person who is exposed again to measles but will have no effect if the person is exposed to mumps.

Depending on when someone was infected and the timing of the test, the test may not find antibodies in someone with a current COVID-19 infection. Antibody tests should not be used to diagnose active COVID-19 infection.


Molecular (PCR) Test

Available at Signaturecare: Yes
On-site or Send Out? Send Out
PCR test results will be available in two (2) hrs.

PCR tests are performed with a nasal swab. The test detects viral genetic material (RNA). It is considered very accurate but takes more time. If you have symptoms, and other tests are not showing it, then you may need to consider a PCR test.
