Blood Flow Screening

For the benefit of our community, Wooster Community Hospital has developed a superior blood flow screening to identify potential risk factors associated with the onset of a stroke, peripheral arterial disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Through our low cost blood flow screening, you can discover potential treatment before your health has been jeopardized. Screenings are done by professional staff employed by the hospital and live in this community.  Results are sent to the patient within five working days. You do not need a doctor’s order for this test. Anyone can schedule this for themselves. The cost is $99/person. Ask about our Senior Partner discount.
