South Peninsula Hospital is improving your access to your care by adding seven additional exam rooms to Homer Medical Center and replacing the 40 year old air handling system in the hospital’s operating rooms. Funding these projects through general obligation bonds will save hundreds of thousands of dollars in financing and is not expected to raise the mil rate or your property taxes based on current assessed values.
Service area residents will vote on general obligation bond funding at the general election on October, 4.
The 33rd annual Rotary Health Fair is set for Saturday, November 5 from 7:30am-1:00pm at the Homer High School. “It’s Your Life … Take a Day to be Well” is the theme of the fair, sponsored by Homer Kachemak Bay Rotary Club in cooperation with South Peninsula Hospital.
As part of the health fair, comprehensive blood analysis is available for only $40, a sizeable discount from the average cost of a comparable test. In addition to the basic wellness test, additional tests available for purchase include prostate, thyroid, cardiac, vitamin D and hemoglobin A1C. Click HERE for complete list of tests and prices.
These tests are offered by appointment at the fair, or before the fair at the hospital with the results available for pickup at the fair. Appointments are offered from October 17-November 4 in the hospital conference room on the hospital’s lower level. Appointments can be made HERE or by calling the healthfair hotline at 399-3158.
