This is the second year that the hospital is sponsoring its own health
fair instead of hosting a 9Health Fair in Salida. The HRRMC Health Fair
will be held Saturday, April 23, 6:30 a.m. to noon, at the hospital's
main campus. Anyone 18 and older may participate in the fair's low-cost
and free health screenings.
Participants may also preregister for the HRRMC Health Fair online with
Visa, MasterCard or Discover.
Early-draw appointments are available at the hospital the week leading
up to the HRRMC Health Fair. These appointments enable participants to
skip the health fair lines for the blood draw. Appointments are being
scheduled April 18-22, between 6-9 a.m.
Participants may schedule their early-draw appointment at the hospital
preregistration or request an early-draw appointment online.
The HRRMC Health Fair offers five basic low-cost screenings including blood
chemistry ($30), PSA ($25), hemoglobin Alc ($25), blood count ($15), and
vitamin D ($40). Instead of sending the lab tests to an outside laboratory,
the lab tests are performed locally at HRRMC, and the proceeds are reinvested
in Wellness U, the hospital's community wellness program.
Free screenings available on the day of the health fair include diabetes,
vision, chiropractic, body composition, blood pressure, pulmonary, skin,
mental health, postural, nutrition, and more. Participants may preregister
for an early-draw appointment and avoid the lines, then come the day of
the fair to take advantage of the free screenings.
Attending the HRRMC Health Fair does not replace a regular checkup with
your physician, and participants are advised to make an appointment with
their primary care provider to interpret test results. For questions about
the Health Fair, contact Jon Fritz at (719) 530-2057 or visit hrrmc.com.
