HRH Expands Low-cost Health Screenings
October 06, 2010
Holy Rosary Healthcare recently expanded its walk-in Lab Check program to offer 15 of the most popular health screenings.
Holy Rosary’s Lab Check program provides an opportunity for people to be screened without a doctor’s referral and without an appointment seven days a week, year-round. Prices on these screenings are reduced to make the program more attractive. People are encouraged to fast for 12 hours and then come to the Holy Rosary Laboratory between 7am and 7pm weekdays, and between 8am and 2pm weekends.
“Lab Check is a great program for the public because of the immediate availability, 7-day-a-week access, and low prices without a doctor’s referral or appointment,” said Annette Ban, HRH Lab Manager. “There are many reasons to check on the status of your health, even when you're feeling well, and Lab Check allows you to do that anytime very easily.”
The 15 screenings are included under the main areas of general health, diabetes management, cholesterol, heart disease, thyroid, men’s and women’s health, and ulcers. Prices range from $5 to $35.
Each test screens for important health indicators. Ashlee Ketchum, HRH medical lab scientist explained, “We researched the most popular screenings in light of the most recent medical research. A good example is why someone might have their Vitamin D levels tested. Appropriate levels of Vitamin D may provide protection from osteoporosis, hypertension, cancer, and sever autoimmune diseases.”
