Glucose & Cholesterol Screenings
Providing Healthy Resources to Virginia & West Virginia Patients
Valley Health is committed to helping our communities become healthier,
together. At Hampshire Memorial Hospital, we are dedicated to long-term
cardiovascular health and preventing heart attacks. That’s why we
offer free glucose and cholesterol screenings on the last Tuesday of every
even-numbered month. Cholesterol tests are available from 7:00 a.m. to
9:30 a.m. in the hospital’s lab next to the main entrance.
Screening dates for 2016 are:
- February 23rd
- April 26th
- June 28th
- August 30th
- October 25th
- December 27th
Regular cholesterol or glucose screening is crucial for those who have
a history of heart attacks or obesity in their families. In addition,
glucose screening can help discover insulin resistance before it becomes
diabetes, helping prevent the long-term effects of hyperglycemia. Get your screening
today! No physician referral is required, and walk-ins are welcome.
Fasting is required for more accurate results! To schedule an appointment
