Sanford Clinic Vermillion has announced it will offer The Heart Screen at Sanford from Sept. 10-12. The Heart Screen includes an EKG, blood pressure check, heart score CT and lipid panel. This screening is designed to discover cardiovascular disease and its risk factors.
The screening will take place in a specially-designed mobile unit located next to Sanford Clinic Vermillion on Plum Street.
"Early diagnosis and preventive therapy should be considered the standard of care for heart disease," said Tom Stys, MD, cardiology medical director with Sanford. "It is a very treatable and preventable disease as long as it is identified in its early stages, so we're pleased to be able to make The Heart Screen at Sanford available to more people by bringing this to Vermillion."
The Heart Screen will be available from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 10 and 11, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Sept. 12. Cost is $50.
To make an appointment, call 605-33-HEART or 1-800-445-5788.For more information about The Heart Screen at Sanford, visit www.sanfordvermillion.org.
