Plus, for one-day only during the Hamilton Memorial Hospital Health Fair, attendees will be able to purchase reduced rate lab vouchers and have lab-work drawn on the same day.
“Although we’ve changed the process, year-after-year we continue to offer the Fall Wellness blood draw as a community service to give people the opportunity to receive lab work at a significantly lower cost. For the Health Fair, we wanted to give those that might have missed the time frame to purchase a voucher one last chance to participate. We encourage anyone who needs lab work or is interested learning about their health to take advantage of this opportunity,” stated Victoria Woodrow, Hamilton Memorial Hospital CEO.
