Glendive Medical Center (GMC) is pleased to offer a Fall Health Fair to the public to have their blood panels drawn at a discounted rate. The event will be held in Carney Conference Room in the lower level of the hospital September 21, 22, 25, 26 from 7am to 10am. Plenty of refreshments, information on GMC services, and health and wellness tips will be offered to patrons. Walk-ins are welcome and no appointment is necessary.

“We are pleased to offer patients this opportunity once again to maintain and improve their health and wellness”, stated Jill Domek, Vice President of Clinical Services, “our Fall Health Fair offers them a chance to gauge where they are at in their wellness journey.” For the most accurate results, patients are asked to fast for 12 hours and drink plenty of water.

A large selection of panels at reduced costs is available including Wellness $50, PSA $25, Anemia with Vitamin D $45, and A1C $20. GMC is pleased to offer two opportunities per calendar year for patients to have these panels drawn at reduced prices. What was once called the “Birthday Month”, patients can now come in anytime during the year for their first blood draw and then again at the GMC Fall Health Fair.

All labs are processed locally at GMC and results are guaranteed in Patient Connect, GMC’s electronic medical record system, within 24 hours. Patient Connect is an integrated medical record system for patients of Glendive Medical Center as well as those that doctor at Billings Clinic. Patients can sign up for Patient Connect at the event or anytime at an outpatient registration desk at GMC. Paper copies can be mailed by checking the box on the Annual Wellness form given to each patient upon arrival for their blood draw. Paper copies are typically mailed within two weeks.

Medicare patients will be able to set appointments for their Annual Wellness Visit during the event and booths on GMC classes and services will be set up for patrons to visit.

Insurance will not be accepted, however, patients can submit their claim once the appointment is done. Cash, credit, and check are accepted.
