Beginning Tuesday, March 2, 2021, Panhandle Health will be offering free health screenings (BP, fasting glucose, hemoglobin A1c, BMI and a complete lipid panel) to our patients with the intention of identifying persons with excessive risk for diabetes, stroke and heart disease. These screenings will occur on the first Tuesday of every month during clinic hours beginning at 5:30 pm. Screenings take approximately 30 minutes and are at no cost to the patient. Patients identified with health screening concerns will be referred to the BPiCC clinic staff when the persons identified have no access to an existing health care/primary care provider in the community or have no resources to be able to follow through with a visit to the previously established Primary Care Provider.
As of February 11, 2021, patients are now being seen in the clinic. Patients may come to the clinic beginning at 5:30 pm. Masks are to be worn while in the clinic. Patients will be required to answer health questions and have a temperature check prior to entering the building. Patients WILL NOT be seen with fever, cough, sore throat or suspected/known exposure to Covid-19. Please call the clinic with any questions at 208-255-9099.
