west baptist hospital 300PADUCAH, KY (2/7/12) – Western Baptist Hospital will offer free screenings during a Heart Health Fair from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 25, in the atrium of Doctors Office Building 2.
 
Western Baptist staff will provide free blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and EKG rhythm strip screenings, as well as heart-healthy information. Fasting and advance registration are not required.
 
In addition, cardiologist Patrick Withrow, M.D., vice president and chief medical officer of Western Baptist Hospital, will be available to answer questions.
 
Monitoring risk factors, such as blood pressure and cholesterol, is important in the prevention of heart disease, which remains the nation’s leading killer of men and women.
 
Western Baptist is the only western Kentucky hospital nationally-accredited as a Cycle III Chest Pain Center with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. PCI, also known as angioplasty, uses a stent to open clogged arteries, meaning Western Baptist staff meets national time standards to provide this life-saving treatment.
 
Western Baptist offers a free, five-minute heart risk assessment at www.westernbaptist.com/heart and a 24-hour Chest Pain & Stroke Hotline staffed by local nurses at 1-800-575-1911.
 
For more information, phone the Baptist Health Line at (270) 575-2918.
