Low-Cost Blood Draws Coming Soon

ATLANTIC, IA – Cass County Health System (CCHS) is offering low-cost community blood screenings for people ages 18 and over this fall in Atlantic, Anita, Griswold, and Massena.

“We want people to be healthy—and the first step is knowing some of your basic bloodwork, like cholesterol, blood sugar, and kidney function. By knowing what your numbers are, you and your medical provider can talk about what they mean for your health,” said Mitch Whiley, CCMH Laboratory Director.

The screenings will be held in CCHS Conference Room 2 from 6:30 to 11: 30 am on September 29 through October 1. Screenings will also be held in Anita on October 3rd, Griswold on October 4th, and Massena on October 5th.

Appointments can be made by calling 712-250-8091. The cost for the blood profile is $35, and it includes the following: Lipid Panel (total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL), Glucose, Complete Blood Count (CBC), Liver Function, Kidney Function, and Thyroid Screening. With the $35 blood profile, you can also add these screenings for an additional fee:
• A1c: $12
• PSA: $20
• Vitamin D: $30

Participants should fast overnight before their appointment, although a small amount of water or black coffee the morning of the blood draw is fine.
