Memorial Hospital Lab Offers Low Cost Blood Draws and Tests
Residents of Converse County and the surrounding region will have access to more health care screenings thanks to the lab professionals at Memorial Hospital of Converse County. Starting this week Memorial Hospital's lab will be offering convenient blood screenings for a variety of tests to help members of our community stay healthier overall.
The cost is affordable to most budgets and the results are provided in a timely turnaround. Results are made available in the Memorial Hospital Patient Portal or can be mailed to you by request. There is no appointment necessary for the blood draws and if requested the lab will forward to your provider.
Chemistry Health Screen Profile $35
This health screen provides information on blood glucose, cholesterol, kidney, liver and thyroid function. To have the most accurate results, we request that you fast (do not eat any food or drink any liquids with cream or sugar in them) for 8-12 hours before your blood draw. Drink plenty of water during your fast, and take your regular medications. If you are diabetic, do not fast.
Hemogram Blood Count Screen $15
This screen provides your platelet, white and red blood cell count, and includes your hemoglobin and hematocrit levels. This test provides information about your general health and can screen for anemia, infection, leukemia, inflammation and bleeding disorders.
Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) $30 Men Only
This screen is recommended for men over the age of 40 who have a family history of prostate cancer and for all males ages 50-75. An elevated PSA can occur in men who have prostate cancer and also in men who have non-cancerous prostate disease.
Hemoglobin A1c $25
This test is used to help determine how well your blood sugars are controlled. The American Diabetes Association recommends having an A1c test at least twice a year. Depending on how well your diabetes is controlled and the preference of your physician, your A1c may be measured two to four times a year
Vitamin D 25 Hydroxy $35
This test is used to determine if you have a vitamin D deficiency or excess vitamin D. Low levels of vitamin D can lead to weak bones and osteoporosis. High levels of vitamin D can lead to calcification and damage to your internal organs, particularly your blood vessels and kidneys.
This test is used to assess your body's iron stores. It can help determine if you have an iron deficiency (anemia) or if you have an iron overload (hemochromatosis). Alcohol abuse, acute hepatitis and infections can also increase iron levels.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) $20
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is used to help diagnose thyroid disorders and to monitor the treatment of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The TSH test is included in the Chemistry Health Screen Profile and is also offered on its own if you only need to monitor your TSH level.
