Parkview Huntington Hospital (PHH) and the Parkview Center for Healthy Living are teaming up to offer two Check-Up Day events in May. Taking advantage of reduced-cost lab testing at Check-Up Day can help area residents keep an eye on their health and well-being.
Check-Up Day will take place in PHH’s Wellness Classrooms on two Wednesdays, May 4 and 18, from 7 to 9:30 a.m.
Currently, plenty of appointments are available for May 18, but appointments for May 4 are more limited.
Changes have been made to test packages and pricing for 2022. Fasting is not required for these single tests: glycohemoglobin A1C ($30) and thyroid stimulating hormone, known as TSH ($35).
Wellness packages have been simplified from the past. Instead of packages A, B, C and D, participants can now choose from the customizable Green Package and the deluxe Diamond Package.
The Green Package includes a lipid profile and glycohemoglobin A1C for $50. In addition, participants can opt to add any of these tests onto the Green Package: comprehensive metabolic profile (CMP), $25; complete blood count (CBC), $15; thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), $30; prostate specific antigen (PSA, for men), $30; and vitamin D, $40.
The Diamond Package consists of the basic Green Package PLUS the CMP, CBC, TSH and PSA for a total cost of $115. Those who wish to purchase a Diamond Package without the PSA may do so for $100.
The vitamin D test can be added to either Diamond Package for a fee of $40.
Anyone selecting a wellness package must fast for 10 to 12 hours before their appointment. During fasting, sips of water and regular medications as prescribed are ok.
This is an appointment-only event; walk-ins cannot be accepted. Participants must pre-register by calling 266-6500. Callers should leave a message including their name and phone number if a Parkview Center for Healthy Living team member is not available at the time of the call. Payment by credit card at the time of pre-registration is required.
In accordance with Parkview policy, masks must be worn over mouth and nose at all times.
