Nanticoke Memorial is holding cholesterol screenings
Nanticoke Memorial Hospital is offering cholesterol screenings on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 7:30 - 10 a.m. in the Community Room of the hospital. Participants will have the opportunity to select from two types of blood tests. One option is a Total Cholesterol test, which is a non-fasting blood test that will read the total cholesterol level. The cost is $5. The second option is a Lipid Profile test, which requires a 12-hour fasting and reads the HDL and LDL blood levels. Cost for the Lipid Profile is $15. In addition to the cholesterol screening free blood pressure checks will be offered. Employees representing Laboratory Services, Corporate Education and Cardiac Rehabilitation will assist with the screenings. Results from the cholesterol screening will be mailed approximately two weeks after the test is performed. For additional information call 629-6611 extension 2404.
