Mercy St. Francis Hospital to Host Health Fair

September 1, 2017

Are you at risk of having diabetes, heart disease or other chronic conditions? A few simple tests could shine light on lingering health problems. That’s why Mercy St. Francis Hospital is hosting a health fair on Friday, Sept. 29.

“A lot of folks will be in town for Pioneer Day that weekend, so we wanted to make it as easy as possible for everyone to stop by and get some reduced-cost lab screenings,” said Mercy dietitian Lindsey Barton.

Anyone is invited to stop by the hospital for the event, which will include interactive booths with health information and services, as well as the following offerings:

  • Comprehensive health panel (complete metabolic profile, lipid profile, complete blood count), $15
  • PSA Test (prostate cancer screening), $10
  • Hgb A1c (average blood glucose), $5
  • TSH (thyroid test), $5
  • Blood Pressure and Heart Rate
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Oxygen Saturation and Spirometry

“If detected early, a lot of conditions could be prevented,” Barton said. “If you’re coming to this health fair, it’s important to fast for 12 hours before having blood drawn.”

The health fair on Friday, Sept. 29, will run from 6 to 10 a.m. in Suite 1 on the east side of the hospital, located at 100 W. U.S. Highway 60 in Mountain View, Missouri. No registration is required for the health fair; participants will be screened on a first-come, first-served basis.
