Hospital’s health fair on tap for Saturday
Lab draw test results will be distributed
Chase County Community Hospital will be hosting its annual community-wide health fair this Saturday, Aug. 25, from 8 to 11 am.
Individuals who have participated in the early lab draws last week and this week can pick up their results during Saturday’s event.
As of Monday, 283 residents had taken advantage of the reduced price lab draws. Available tests include a General Health Profile which checks for blood count, thyroid, diabetes, anemia, cholesterol and kidney disorders. Cost is $40. Other lab testing includes Hemoglobin A1C for $10, Vitamin D level for $40 and men can take a PSA test for prostate cancer for $20.
Lab draws will continue at the hospital through today (Thursday) with a daily schedule from 6 to 9 a.m..
Youths who are 18 years or younger can receive lab draws for an additional 15 percent discount.
Hospital staff will be available during the health fair on Aug. 25 to review the lab draw results. Those individuals who have lab draws done but can’t attend the health fair may pick up their results at the lab after Saturday.
If a person needs someone else to pick up their results, there is a section at the bottom of the registration form where they can authorize another person to obtain the results.
Registration forms are available on the Chase County Hospital website at www.chasecountyhospital.com or contact the Chase County Clinic in Imperial and Wauneta.
There will be a number of booths at the health fair that provide information on a variety of services available at the hospital as well as information on obesity, diabetes, heart disease, blood pressure, sleep, nutrition and more. There will also be an opportunity to have weight and blood pressure checks as well as a skin check for any signs of irregularities.
