Prowers Medical Center Health Fair
National Hospital Week began in 1921 and has developed into the nation’s largest health care event. During National Hospital Week, Prowers Medical Center takes on an atmosphere of celebration as we play host to a three-day annual Health Fair event to “celebrate the history, technology and dedicated professionals” within our hospital system. It gives us the opportunity to remind surrounding communities of the essential role the men and women working in our hospital play in caring for their family, friends and neighbors.
Each year, a theme is selected that honors all who work in hospitals doing what they do so well … Caring, Healing and Helping. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and thriving community.
The workforce in your community hospital is a group of hardworking and caring individuals with an unwavering dedication to perform medical miracles … 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We utilize this annual event to tell our Hospital story and to say “Thank You” to the men and women who provide quality and compassionate healthcare, right here at home.
“A COMMUNITY TRADITION – 39+ years running”
Over the last few years, we have worked hard to develop partnerships with a variety of Community and Healthcare organizations that have joined in our effort to better educate and inform individuals about the accessibility to the many health related resources and services available.
This Community Tradition provides Health Fair participants from Lamar and the surrounding communities with an opportunity to experience FREE and Special Savings Discounts for a variety of healthcare screenings.
We invite you to be a part of the many great things that are happening at your community hospital!
Join us in 2019 for our annual Health Fair event
on Tuesday, May 7th through Thursday, May 9th.
The event will run between the hours of 7:00 am and 11:00 am all three (3) days.
