Crockett Hospital Hosting Annual Health Fair

August 31, 2015

Crockett Hospital will be hosting its annual health fair on Saturday, April 5 form 8:00 am until 10:30 am at the hospital. 

For a number of years the staff at Crockett Hospital has offered the health fair to those in Lawrence County and the surrounding area. Hospital officials say it is an excellent opportunity to learn more about your health and also about the services provided at the hospital. 

There will be free blood pressure screenings offered with health information pertaining to the risks involved with high blood pressure and what one can do to lower their blood pressure. There is no charge to attend the fair but for those wanting to have a blood chemistry profile done there is a nominal fee of $25 and those men wishing to have prostate cancer blood work there is a $5 charge. Other free screenings include hearing consultation and testing provided by Hearing Care Center, glaucoma screenings provided by Remke Eye Clinic, and skin cancer screenings by Skin Solutions. 

Crockett Hospital staff members will be available to share information about their Sleep Center, Women’s Services Center, the pulmonary rehabilitation facility, physical rehabilitation services, medical imaging services, surgical capabilities, the medical specialties offered from local physicians, and more. Those women who are forty years of age will even be able to schedule their annual mammogram during the same time. 

This past year a number of physicians have joined the medical staff at the hospital and many of them will be at the fair in order to introduce themselves and answer any questions the participants may have about their new practices. 

There are no appointments necessary to participate in the health fair. Registration will be on a first come, first served basis. Those attending need to enter through the main entrance of the hospital. Individuals wanted to have the optional blood work done should be aware that fasting eight hours before the health fair will yield the best results.
