Stroke and osteoporosis screenings coming to Blythe
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - Residents living in and around the Blythe community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Blythe City Hall will host Life Line Screening on Jan. 23. The site is located at 235 N. Broadway in Blythe. Richard Bennet from Woodland Hills, Calif., participated in a Life Line Screening event in March 2008 and learned he had an abdominal aortic aneurysm. He writes, "I feel as though Life Line Screening saved my life and can't thank you enough!"

Four key points every person needs to know:

• Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability

• 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke

• Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke

• Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient

Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women.

Packages start at $149. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-237-1287 or visit our website at Pre-registration is required.

Beware of any mailings you recieve from the hospital or it's so called staff. They are just propaganda. It would be wonderful if a true investigation of all the dealings of the hospital management, board, doctors, and staff could be done. Something tells me the management and old board would love to have a full investigation too. But that is the last thing the doctors would like.

The flyer did not come from the "The Hospital." I suspect it's from an invasion of exploitation.

Well I thought that too. In a recent comment I made about this hospital, I should have touch on that. My first and only visit cost the VA over $4000.00, for what they called a headache, and fired me up with morphine before any test were done! I didn't know it cause I looked away-I thought he was taking blood. Just recieved a mailing from the hospital about there political problems. My problem isn't with the politices- it's with the treatment-maybe I belong to the wrong church!

Article comment by: Community Hospital?????

Isnt this something a "community" hospital should be doing. Oh, that's right, there is no money to be made for the doctors and the ambulance companies for such service.
