Monongahela Valley Hospital will hold a Multiphasic Health Screening on Saturday, March 21, from 7 to 10 a.m. in the Anthony M. Lombardi Education Conference Center on the hospital campus.
The multiphasic blood analysis is open to the public with a cost of $30 per person. In addition to the blood analysis, a mammogram screening and colorectal take-home kits will be available.
From one small blood sample, 36 individual tests will be performed that can detect diseases of the heart, liver, kidneys and circulatory system. At no additional cost, the screening will also include a full lipid profile. Additional blood tests are not included in the analysis, but can be added for a cost.
These screenings and additional blood tests will also be available for an additional fee:
- Immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood take-home test
- 3-D mammogram (insurance card required)
- Hemoglobin A1C (blood test for diabetes)
- Thyroid stimulating hormone
- Prostatic specific antigen
- Vitamin D
Participants will be asked to provide insurance information and identification for a prescribed A1C test or mammogram.
When registering, participants will be asked to provide the full name and complete address of the physician to whom their test results will be sent. A 12-hour fasting period is required prior to testing. Persons on medication should consult their physicians. Certified medical professionals from the MVH laboratory and medical imaging will administer the testing. The procedure takes between 15 and 20 minutes; allow added time if scheduling a mammogram.
Light refreshments will be served afterwards. Parking is free for participants. Payment options include cash, check or credit card.
Register Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. by calling 724-258-1282. Registration is required and closes on Wednesday, March 18.
