The HRRMC Health Fair is scheduled for Saturday, June 1, from 7 a.m.-noon
at the hospital in
Salida, 1000 Rush Dr. Anyone 18 and older may participate in the fair’s
low-cost blood tests and free health screenings.
In addition to the screenings, attendees can visit with community vendors
and tour the new Outpatient Pavilion.
This year’s low-cost screenings are blood chemistry ($35), blood
count ($20), B12/folate profile ($35), hemoglobin A1c ($30), PSA ($30),
testosterone ($45) and vitamin D ($45).
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.
Free screenings available at the HRRMC Health Fair include blood pressure,
body in balance, body composition, cardiopulmonary, height/weight (BMI),
nutrition, oral health and skin.
This year’s vendors are Chaffee County Public Health, Heart of the
Rockies Home Health and Hospice, Women’s Wellness Connection, REACH
Air Medical Services, Premier Home Care, Ark Valley Helping Hands and HRRMC.

your physician, and participants are advised to make an appointment with
their primary care provider to interpret test results.
