Because the best way to get well is to avoid health issues to begin with, Clark Memorial provides free screenings to help you keep tabs on your state of health. These screenings covers your general health including blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, and diabetes.
Cardiac Calcium Scoring is a safe and painless test that can detect potential heart problems before they advance. The procedure uses a special CT scan to check for the buildup of calcium on the walls of the coronary arteries of the heart. Coronary artery disease can affect blood flow to the heart and can result in painful angina or a heart attack. Clark Memorial offers Calcium Scoring at the hospital in Jeffersonville and at the Hunter Station Medical Center. The cost is $50. To schedule an appointment please call 800.424.DOCS.
