The HRRMC Health Fair is coming Saturday, June 1, 7 a.m. – 12 p.m.
to the hospital’s main campus, 1000 Rush Dr., Salida.
Online registration is now available for anyone who would like to preregister
for the fair’s low-cost screenings. Lab screenings include blood
chemistry ($35), B12/folate panel ($35), PSA ($30), hemoglobin Alc ($30),
blood count ($20), vitamin D ($45) and testosterone ($45).
These lab screenings are offered year-round at the same low cost through
HRRMC’s Direct Access Laboratory Testing program at the hospital,
HRRMC’s Buena Vista clinic, and the Custer County Medical Center
Free screenings including blood pressure, body in balance, body composition,
cardiopulmonary, nutrition, oral health, skin and more, will also be offered
at the fair.
To preregister for the low-cost lab screenings, go to hrrmc.com and click
on the “HRRMC Health Fair” button on the home page. A representative
from HRRMC’s Patient Financial Services Department will contact
you once registration is complete regarding payment. Preregistration is
not required, but will save participants the time required to register
on the day of the fair.
To ensure accurate results for the blood chemistry test, a 12-hour fast
(no food) is recommended prior to the blood draw. Fasting is not necessary
for the other low-cost screening tests. Diabetics should
not fast. All participants should drink water and take their regular medication.
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.
HRRMC traditionally schedules its health fair in April, but this year it
will coincide with the grand opening of the new outpatient pavilion, which
adjoins the hospital and will house medical specialists, rehabilitation,
wellness and other services.
