2024 Lab Health Fair


Ruby Valley Medical Center Enhances CommunityLaboratory Health Fair Services

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

(Sheridan, Montana, June 7,2024) – Ruby Valley Medical Center (RVMC) has revamped the program for discounted laboratory services provided through its Health Fair to better serve the Ruby Valley and Whitehall communities. The new program offers each community member one annual discounted set of lab tests and a menu of over twice as many lab tests compared to past Health Fairs. “We are very pleased to provide more flexibility and options for how our patients can receive this important healthcare benefit,” said RVMC CEO, Jim Gillhouse.

 

How does it work? Patients should discuss with their healthcare provider which lab tests will be beneficial. At the patient’s convenience and during regular business hours, come to RVMC’s registration desk and request the annual discounted lab tests. No appointment is necessary. RVMC’s lab department will make the necessary blood draw. The test results will be mailed to the patient. Payment is due at the time of service and there is no insurance billing by RVMC. Cash or credit cards are accepted for payment.

 

“For many years, we held the Health Fair for a few days in the spring,” said RVMC Chief Medical Officer, Louis Bartoletti, MD. “Last year, we had an excellent turnout when we ran the Health Fair for the month of June. We decided we could enhance the benefits of flexible scheduling for the lab tests by offering a single annual discounted, any-time blood draw for every member of the community.”

 

The tests offered have been expanded to include an anemia panel, tests for sexually transmitted diseases, as well as analyses for phosphorus, magnesium, C-reactive protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and total testosterone levels. Dr. Bartoletti believes that these additional tests will be very helpful in monitoring additional aspects of patient health and can provide an early indication of potential healthcare issues.
