Health fair in Troy set for April 10

February 28, 2024 

HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland will host a community health screening event on Wednesday, April 10 from 6 to 9 a.m. at the HSHS Medical Group Family Medicine office at 7342 IL-162, Troy, Illinois.

“We are pleased to provide the Troy area residents with a health screening event that offers lower cost lab work so that they may be empowered to advocate for their own health,” shared Lorien Martindale, laboratory facilitator at St. Joseph’s Hospital. 

Those wanting to attend must register for an appointment online.

Visit here before Sunday, April 7.
There are limited spots available and on-site registration will not be accepted. If you are unable to register online, you can call 618-651-2739 for assistance.

The health screening event is a self-pay service. No payments will be taken at the time of pre-registration; payment will be expected the day of the screening by cash or check only. Participants are strongly encouraged to arrive at their appointment with exact cash or a check written out totaling the amount of the screening tests they are having at the event. Checks should be made payable to HSHS. 

St. Joseph’s Hospital will not bill your insurance plan for any services rendered. You may submit your health screening event receipt to your insurance plan, but St. Joseph’s Hospital will not be able to provide an insurance claim. 

To ensure attendees receive test results in a timely manner, St. Joseph’s Hospital will post results to attendees’ MyHSHS (formerly MyChart) accounts or mail all test results to participants in approximately four weeks following the screening event. It is free and easy to create a MyHSHS account:
  • Go to www.myhshs.org
  • Login or create a MyHSHS account by clicking “Sign Up Now.” Be sure to use your full proper name that is noted in your HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital medical record or HSHS Medical Group doctor’s office.
If you have questions about MyHSHS, call the MyChart support line at 1-866-312-5023.

No test results will be mailed or faxed to a participant’s health care provider. The responsibility for initiating follow-up examinations for abnormalities identified at the health screening lies with the person responsible for their own health and not with any participating organization.

Participants can elect to receive the following screenings at the listed prices:
  • Comprehensive Blood Screenings ($45) 
    • This screening includes complete blood chemistry; cholesterol and lipids, cardiac risk profile, anemia test, complete blood count, kidney and liver function and thyroid screening. 10-hour fast required. 
  • Prostatic-Specific Antigen (PSA) Screenings ($15) 
    • o    This screening is for men only. A doctor uses these results along with an exam to screen for prostate cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends that men should receive the PSA annually, beginning at age 50 or begin at age 45 if considered “high risk.” This includes African Americans and men who have a close relative who had prostate cancer before age 65, or close relative with prostate cancer at an early age; then testing can begin at age 40. 
  • Hemoglobin A1C ($10) 
    • This test measures the average blood glucose of diabetics during a two- to three-month period. This test is recommended for those with or at-risk for diabetes. 
  • Vitamin D Screening ($15) 
    • This screening helps detect vitamin D deficiency, needed for calcium absorption and strong bones. 
Screenings with a 10-hour fast as previously identified require drinking water only; no gum, hard candy, sugar or sweeteners. Be sure to drink plenty of water before coming to the screening event to have your labs drawn. Please wear short-sleeved shirts and coats that are easily removed to make the process easier.

HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital is also hosting a drive-thru health fair on April 24. To learn how to register for this event, visit here.
