New community screening schedule


Pomerene Hospital has made several changes to its Community Outreach Health and Wellness Screenings for 2013.

Screenings will be held at the following locations only in 2013: Mount Hope Methodist Church, first Wednesday of every month, 7 a.m.-11 a.m.;

Keim Lumber, third Wednesday of every month, 7 a.m.-11 a.m.

Screenings will be offered in two tiers. Tier 1 will require no doctor's order and tier 2 will require a doctor's order. Tier 1 screenings include blood sugar, lipid panel (cholesterol), PSA (prostate cancer), hemoglobin A1C, thyroid panel and liver panel. Pricing will remain the same as the 2012 screenings.

Tier 2 screenings, which require a doctor's order, are CBC and CMP testing.

For more information, the cost of screenings or for a 2013 health screening calendar, call Connie Weaver at 330-674-1584, Ext. 1764.
