CRH Offering Two Important Health Screening Opportunities
Columbus Regional Heath is pleased to offer two upcoming opportunities for important health screenings.
On Oct. 28, Columbus Regional Health Breast Health Services will offer a free clinical breast screening event for those whose insurance does not cover breast screenings. Also, throughout November, the CRH Lung Care Team is offering low-dose lung scans to anyone who is eligible and hasn’t had a lung scan before.
Free Clinical Breast Screen
This year about 1 million Americans will develop breast cancer. If detected early, 95% can be successfully treated. Columbus Regional Health is hosting a free clinical breast exam to detect possible breast cancer and to provide referrals for those who may need a follow-up mammogram.
Screenings will be conducted between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m., Oct. 28 at CRH Breast Surgery, 2326 18th Street, Ste 230. Registration is required by calling 812.376.5136.
$25 First-Time Lung Scans
In conjunction with Lung Cancer Awareness Month, Columbus Regional Health is proud to offer reserved appointments for patients needing a first-time lung scan on the first three Saturdays in November. Each scan is offered for $25 and will not be submitted to insurance. Payment will be collected at the time of the scan. Scans are available on Saturday, November 4, 11, and 18, 2023. Registration is required by calling 812.579.4400.
