‘We Care 4 U’ screenings May 17 at Paris Hospital

PARIS, ILL. — Paris Community Hospital will offer a series of health screenings on May 17 in the Paris Family Medical Center at Paris, Ill. The screenings will be available from 7 to 11 a.m. by appointment.

These “We Care 4 U” health screenings will include stroke, lung, heart/diabetic, and osteoporosis/bone screenings. The screenings will be offered “a la carte,” meaning participants can choose which screenings they would like done. Participants should allow at least an hour for their screenings.

All tests will be performed by certified/registered healthcare professionals using state-of-the-art equipment at PCH/FMC. Screenings will include the following:

n Stroke screening, $129: Includes an ultrasound of the carotid arteries in the neck; a peripheral arterial screening (blood pressures in the arms and legs); and an abdominal aortic aneurysm screening, which checks for an enlarged aorta.

n Lung screening, $99: Tests for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The screening includes a pulmonary function test, which checks overall lung health, and a pulse oximetry test, which determines oxygen level in the blood.

n Heart/diabetic screening, $49: Measures heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar, lipid panel/total cholesterol (HDL, LDL, and triglycerides). An electrocardiogram checks for potential heart problems.

n Osteoporosis (bone) screening, $29: A heel scan measures bone mineral content in the body.

n Complete screening package, all tests, $249: Stroke screening, lung screening, heart/diabetic screening, and osteoporosis (bone) screening.

All screening results will be provided to participants the day of the screenings. Note that all medical tests are for screening purposes only. It is the participant’s responsibility to schedule a follow-up appointment with a healthcare provider if he or she chooses. At no point will participants be asked to undress, just simply wear loose fitting clothing.

To schedule an appointment, call Leighsa Cornwell at 217-465-2606, ext. 228. Cash, check and credit card will be accepted. No insurance will be billed.
