The cost-reduced screenings will be available from 7 – 9 a.m., in the Wright Memorial Hospital lab draw suite, located near the main lobby.

Screening options include:

Wellness Panel ‐ $125
Complete Metabolic Panel (CMP) - tests included in this panel:
1. Glucose
2. Calcium
3. Proteins (Albumin, Total Protein)
4. Electrolytes (Sodium, Potassium, CO2, Chloride)
5. Kidney Tests (BUN, Creatinine)
6. Liver Tests (Alkaline Phosphatase, Alanine Amino, Transferase, Aspartate Amino Transferase, Bilirubin)
Lipid Panel (heart disease)—includes cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and LDL
CBC (Anemia, infection state, and bleeding state)
Iron/Transferrin (Iron stores)
Hemoglobin A1C (average blood glucose for past 3 months)

PSA (Prostate) ‐ $50

TSH (Thyroid) ‐ $50

Each of the rates is considerably higher than last year.

A spokesman reported that with the Saint Luke’s health system initiative to cut over 100 million dollars in expense by year 2015, and due to reimbursement changes in health care, Wright Memorial has to look at services that cost money.

The health fair and health screenings is described as one of the areas Wright Memorial has been losing money. The spokesman added even with the higher fees for the screenings, the hospital still expects to lose money on tests—just not as much.

All labs and testing will be self-pay only and will not be billed to insurance providers. Persons wanting a wellness panel screening must fast starting at midnight before the screenings are taken the next morning.
