Coronary Risk Screening

It is important that you keep track of risk factors such as elevated blood pressure and cholesterol. Four Saturdays a year SSH offers Coronary Risk/Blood Pressure Screenings. Lab work includes blood glucose level, hematocrit, triglycerides, total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and risk ratio. For information please call 423-542-1280.

Each October SSH honors area clergy with a luncheon, during which local clergy are brought up to date on services provided by the hospital and current community health concerns. SSH also hosts an annual Teacher Health Fair and In-Service Day for educators. The event provides teachers with health information on topics such as diabetes, asthma, stress, nutrition and childhood obesity.
