The Rotary Club of Canton and Mercy Medical Center have partnered to bring very low-cost health screenings to the Stark County community. On Saturday, April 21, the Health Screen & Wellness Fair will take place from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. in Mercy Medical Center’s Mercy Hall Auditorium, 1320 Mercy Drive NW, Canton. Mercy Hall is located directly behind the hospital’s main parking garage.
For just $40, community members can purchase a Basic Panel of blood screenings, which include: CBC with differential, CMP,
lipid profile and thyroid (TSH). This Basic Panel tests for cholesterol, anemia
and kidney/liver function and provides over 30 results. In addition to the $40
Basic Panel, several optional screenings will also be offered, including:
- A1C Hemoglobin (extended look at glucose/blood sugar) $15
- PSA (prostate) $15
- Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy (vitamin D deficiency) $48
A 12-hour fast
is recommended for more accurate results. To register in advance, please call the
Canton Rotary at 330-452-2882 or visit www.cantonrotary.org.
Although registration is preferred, walk-in appointments are also welcome. Rotary Club of Canton will accept
cash, check and credit card (VISA and MASTERCARD) for the above screenings.
In addition to
the blood screenings, Mercy Medical Center is offering a FREE Wellness Fair
with health information and additional FREE screenings, such as blood pressure
checks, body mass index readings, pulmonary function testing and much more.
