Sign up now for Discounted Health Screenings at Skyline

September 2013

Skyline's annual Health Fair will be held on Friday, October 25th and Saturday, October 26th at Skyline Hospital but you should sign up now for your deeply discounted blood chemistry or digital mammogram screenings. Drop-ins will be welcome on a space available basis, but less waiting for those who register in advance. Just call Skyline at (509) 493-1101.

The 32nd annual Health Fair will run from 7am to 11am each day. This year, in addition to the free or low-cost health screenings, you'll find information on wellness, new free and low-cost insurance, breast cancer awareness, and colon cancer prevention. On Saturday, October 26th (only), Skyline and the Klickitat County Sherriff's department will also be hosting a Drug Take Back program at the Health Fair for your unused or expired medications.

More than 250 men and women are expected to attend the health fair. Free screenings include blood pressure, height and weight, and balance testing. For a nominal fee, participants may have blood drawn for testing that includes a complete blood chemistry screen ($40) and must be paid by cash or check. 12-hour fasting is required if you are having your blood drawn. Appointments are recommended for the blood screening, but drop-ins are also taken.
