Hospital hosts free screening

06/18/2015

Uniontown Hospital, in its commitment to provide for the needs of Fayette County residents, will host an Adagio Health education event on June 26 at the hospital.  

The “Get Screened!” event will focus on colorectal cancer and is free to the public.

“Our patients will always be our priority,” Uniontown Hospital CEO Steve Handy said. “We recognize the significance of partnering with Adagio Health to help educate our community to the dangers of colorectal cancer and providing an opportunity for them to learn more about how to ensure their good health.”

According to Bonnie DeLozier, regional program director for Adagio Health, Fayette County has the second highest incidence of colorectal cancer in the state.

“The good news is that if caught early, colorectal cancer is very treatable so we really emphasize the importance of regular screening. We are grateful to the Uniontown Hospital for this opportunity to provide potentially life-saving information and screening,” DeLozier said.

The event, which will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Thelma Sandy Conference Room located just past the information desk in the hospital lobby, will include a free risk assessment for attendees, a free FIT kit (home test kit) and free lab results for all completed kits.

Additionally, representatives from Southwestern Gastrointestinal Specialists in Uniontown will be on hand to answer any questions.

DeLozier said that any participants who complete and return a kit will also receive a $10 Giant Eagle gift card.

She also noted that light refreshments will be provided.
