The mobile facility accepts enrolled patients of Capstone’s Eagle River, Palmer and Wasilla clinics to address suspected COVID-19 cases. If you are not a Capstone patient, you must enroll in your vehicle online onsite. We will update our Capstone Anchorage and Kenai Clinic patients with options and ask that they contact their nearest hospital (Providence / Alaska Regional / Central Peninsula Hospital) for current testing and cases.
Mobile Unit Process/Enrollment
Capstone patients and prospective-patients drive their vehicle to the Capstone’s COVID-19 Testing Facility which is now open 10 AM to 6 PM Saturday/Sunday and 8 AM to 8 PM Monday-Friday.
Phone number: 907-864-4642

Remain in their vehicle while calling a phone number designated on a sign at the mobile site. Verified Capstone patients will be placed in the queue for questions and/or testing if necessary, by a medical provider. If the patient is not enrolled with Capstone they will need to enroll (either in the vehicle line or at the adjacent parking lot out of the line or return once completed and the line allows room for them to wait), and once confirmed, can return to the mobile unit vehicle line.
Mobile Unit Testing/Results
Capstone medical practitioners will follow the recommended federal and State of Alaska inquiry and testing guideline protocols. Testing for COVID-19 will be provided based on symptoms and predictive diagnosis; if the patient doesn’t meet the federal CDC/State DHSS symptom threshold, they will not be tested but will be treated or referred based on their health issue.
Capstone’s new mobile unit has limited radiologic and telemedicine capabilities, and a micro-lab for onsite testing other than COVID-19. COVID-19 tests are sent to the State of Alaska Section of Epidemiology laboratory or to Quest labs, which is out of state. Tests are also limited and Capstone cannot guarantee everyone can be tested and will advise in the mobile vehicle line and via web/social media if it is out of COVID-19 tests.
The testing result time currently varies. As of March 18th, Capstone has been advised the wait time is from three (3) to eleven (11) days. Capstone, unfortunately, has no control over COVID-19 testing processes or result notification time. Self-quarantine and other facets of post-testing and results will be discussed with tested patients at the mobile site with Capstone medical staff based on federal and State of Alaska guidelines at that time.
