warning KSB Welcomes Back Visitors

We have recently updated our visitor policy to allow patients to bring one visitor with them for most appointments and during inpatient stays. With the safety of our patients and team in mind, we will continue to monitor and adjust these policies as needed.


All COVID-19 testing at KSB will take place at the Town Square Centre Lab. Appointments are required by contacting your KSB Provider's Office or calling 1 (800) DOCTORS.
