We get it. Life is busy—it can be a challenge to take time out for health screenings that may not seem all that urgent to you. But it’s a fact: Health screenings save lives everyday. Getting the pulse of your health could help save your life, too. Early detection leads to better health outcomes for you and your loved ones. That’s why One Community Health recommends health screenings throughout the course of our care.
Following evidence-based recommendations from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and United States Preventive Services Task Force, we offer a number of routine screenings, including but not limited to:
Behavioral health screenings
Blood pressure screening
Colorectal cancer screening
Breast exams (women)
Perinatal screenings (mother and baby)
Pap smears (women)
Prostate cancer (men)
Sexually transmitted diseases
Beyond those listed above, we can often order tests to screen for other conditions and diseases or give referrals for more specialized screenings when necessary. As part of our outreach in the community, we offer screenings for pediatric dental health within local schools, basic health and diabetes screenings for migrant farmworkers during harvest season, and free eye exams every spring through our partnership with the Casey Eye Institute Outreach Van, a service of Oregon Health & Sciences University.
